USEd Data-Sharing Tool Kit for Communities

USEd Data-Sharing Tool Kit for Communities

The purpose of this tool kit is to inform civic and community leaders who wish to use shared data to improve academic and life outcomes for students while protecting student privacy. A key success factor in doing this well is understanding the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and its parameters relative to the sharing of personally identifiable information (PII) from education records.

This tool kit is designed to simplify the complex concepts of FERPA. It may be used both as a comprehensive guide and a collection of one-page resources.
