U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue,
SW Washington, DC 20202
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.
