FERPA – the Federal Education Right to Privacy Act

Protects  student information. All information concerning students is considered confidential and may not be shared with anyone

who is not a district employee or government authority with an identified need to know. Do not release any information if you are

unsure the requestor has a right to this information. Explain you need to confirm whether or not you may discuss the matter before proceeding. If someone requests personal information on a student, direct that person to the student directory OR offer to contact the student’s family and give the requestor’s phone number to them so that they may choose whether or not to make contact.

Student ID numbers are also considered confidential and should not be posted. (These identification numbers are used by students to purchase lunches and to access their computer accounts.) It is inappropriate to discuss student information with staff who are not directly involved in working with that student. Examples of this information would include referrals, personal journals/writing, documented academic progress, etc.

Any school problems and information concerning students must be kept confidential and left at school. During the year, teachers may receive written confidential information concerning their students. This information should be kept in a place not accessible to students.

      Examples of confidential information include, but not limited to:

  1. Memos/E-Mails from administration
  2. Memos/E-Mails from counselors
  3. Memos/E-Mails from the nurse
  4. Grades/Grade books
  5. Any student records Special Ed plans / 504’s

Advisor/Advisee

The purpose of the East Providence High School Advisory is to make a large school smaller through the scheduling of groups of students who interact and make a connection with an advisor throughout the school week.  The intent is for the student to make a connection with their group and their advisor that develops throughout their high school career.

There are many resources in the library for the planning advisory activities, see Ms. Donna Sousa for assistance.
