Student education records are those records which contain personally identifiable information, maintained by each school. It is imperative that school personnel protect the privacy of students’ education records and comply with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Therefore, a school will release student records to either the legal custodial parent/guardian or non-custodial parent/guardian unless a court ordered restriction is in place. (UC §53G-7-204)
Students who have 1) graduated or 2) turn 18 (whichever occurs last) or are 3) emancipated (eligible student) become the custodian of their own educational records. Parents/guardians do not have access to these students’ records without a written request of records authorized by the student.
To obtain student transcripts, contact the last school of record a student attended. Transcripts are kept indefinitely at the last high school of attendance.
