FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act)

FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is designed to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate and misleading data.

FERPA applies to all educational institutions (schools or other entities that provide educational services and are attended by students) and educational agencies (entities that administer schools directly linked to them) that receive funds under any program administered by the United States Department of Education.
