PRESENTATION: The role of the Student Support Professional in a school setting comes with a myriad of ethical and legal obligations. One of your foremost duties is to preserve student record information privacy and this duty is informed by both state and federal law. The threefold goals of this seminar are to equip you to better understand the scope of your state and federal duties pertaining to student privacy; to recognize the exceptions to these duties, and to further best practices with regard to maintaining student privacy and making lawful disclosures. This fast-paced seminar will also provide an opportunity for a case study approach as well as questions and answers. As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the scope of state and federal mandates regarding student privacy.
2. Identify the circumstances when exceptions to these regulations are applicable.
3. Learn best practices in maintaining records and making lawful disclosures.
