FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

Key Privacy Rights under FERPA:

  • FERPA requires that federally funded institutions, under programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education, comply with certain procedures with regard to disclosing and maintaining educational records. FERPA was not enacted to preclude the disclosure of educational records simply because the records identify a student by name; rather, it was designed to protect the studentís educational information and status as a student 

COPPA stands for the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

Key Privacy Rights under COPPA:

  • The primary goal of COPPA is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their young children online.  The Rule was designed to protect children under age 13 while accounting for the dynamic nature of the Internet.  The Rule applies to operators of commercial websites and online services (including mobile apps) directed to children under 13 that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children, and operators of general audience websites or online services with actual knowledge that they are collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13. 

PA 16-189 is Public Act No. 16-189, an act concerning student data privacy for the State of Connecticut.

Key Privacy Rights under PA 16-189:

  • Restricting how student information may be used by entities that contract to provide educational software and electronic storage of student records and by operators of websites, online services, or mobile applications (i.e., apps).
