PRIVACY ACT

Also refer to Amarillo College Board Policy Manual
FJ - Student Records 

The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (the Buckley Amendment) guarantees students access to their records, but guarantees privacy of these records from disclosure, unless release is authorized by the student. Student records are not open for public inspection; for example, care should be taken, if grades are posted, to protect the confidentiality and identity fo the student. The confidentiality of social security numbers is also protected. They should not be used for posting student grades. 



Approved: August 20, 1991
