The guidance summarizes the major requirements of the/Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act/ (FERPA) and the /Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment /(PPRA) that relate to these educational services. It also urges schools and school districts to go beyond compliance, to follow best practices for outsourcing school functions using online educational services, including computer software, mobile applications, and web-based tools.
To review this guidance and solicit feedback, the Department and PTAC will be hosting a joint webinar <https://edinfoevents.webex.com/mw0401l/mywebex/default.do?nomenu=true&siteurl=edinfoevents&service=6&rnd=0.5364469841849653&main_url=https%3A%2F%2Fedinfoevents.webex.com%2Fec0701l%2Feventcenter%2Fevent%2FeventAction.do%3FtheAction%3Ddetail%26confViewID%3D1005178099%26%26%26%26siteurl%3Dedinfoevents> on March 13 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
