BRIEF SUMMARY: This bill specifies the policy portion of the existing Faculty Handbook section on Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act/Buckley Amendment (Chapter 3, Section C11). Language has been updated to reflect Missouri statutes and Board of Regents policy.

REVISING "FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT/BUCKLEY AMENDMENT" TO ESTABLISH A POLICY SECTION

BE IT RESOLVED THAT: subject to the passage and approval of both this bill and its companion bill establishing a corresponding "procedures" section, Chapter 3, Section C11 of the Faculty Handbook be amended by replacing the existing content with the following "policy" section (with the companion "procedures" to follow it in the Handbook):

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act/Buckley Amendment Policy

The University maintains students' educational records in a manner consistent with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment), Missouri statutes R.S.MO. 610.021(6) and 610.010(4), and the implementation of these acts. These acts are designed to protect the privacy of students and parents regarding access to records and release of such records, and to provide opportunity for a hearing to challenge such records should they be inaccurate, misleading, or inappropriate.

Under the University's Open Meetings and Open Records Policy, adopted by the Board of Regents October 30, 1987, public records are closed to public inspection and copying to the extent that they relate to scholastic probation, expulsion, or graduation of identifiable individuals and personally identifiable student records.
