Under what circumstances may a school disclose information from education records without consent?
There are several exceptions to FERPA’s general prior consent rule that are set forth in the statute and the regulations.
- To comply with a judicial order or a lawfully issued subpoena;
- To the victim of an alleged perpetrator of a crime of violence or a non-forcible sex offense concerning the final results of a disciplinary hearing with respect to the alleged crime; and
- To any third party the final results of a disciplinary proceeding related to a crime of violence or non-forcible sex offense if the student who is the alleged perpetrator is found to have violated Washington and Jefferson’s Student Code of Conduct.
