EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION/GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES
Monongalia County Schools operates as an equal opportunity institution and will not discriminate in programs or employment practices as required in Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans Disability Act (ADA) of 1990.
FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRICACY ACT (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects students' privacy by prohibiting disclosure of education records without adult consent. FERPA also allows parents and students over the age of 18 to inspect and review education records and request that inaccuracies be corrected.
Schools may share basic "directory" information, such as student names and phone numbers, if they give parents the opportunity to opt out. However, advance written permission is required to release all other student-level information, such as student coursework, class discussions, recorded comments, and grades, if they are linked to any information that would enable a member of the school community to identify the student.
