Basic Rules CONTINUED
Rule #4: School officials, including field supervisors for student teachers and student interns, must protect the privacy of educational records and not disclose personally identifiable information about a student or permit inspection of the student's records without his or her written consent. The student's written, signed, and dated consent must contain three elements:
- Specify the records to be released. Examples: grades; notes based on observations; general assessment of performance of student in a class or in a field-based experience
- Identify the party or class of parties to whom the records should be released. Examples: prospective employer, non-UW-Parkside school official, scholarship committee member
- Indicate the reason for the release. Examples: as part of an application for employment, admission into a graduate program, application for a scholarship or grant
You should forward all requests for private information to the Office of the Registrar.
