Student education records are official, confidential documents protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA, 20 U.S.C. 1232g, 34 CFR Part 99). FERPA defines education records as all records that schools or education agencies maintain about students, and protects both paper and computerized records. FERPA and other privacy laws (such as Title I, Special Education, and the NM Manual on Protecting Student Information) ensure that information about citizen collected by schools and government agencies is released only for specific and legally defined purposes.
