Student Records and FERPA

Parents and adult pupils have the right to review the pupil's entire record or any part of it within 10 days of their request to do so, to have copies made, to challenge the contents of the record, and/or to insert educationally relevant date and/or comments.  Parents and adult pupils must give their permission, or in other situations receive prior notice, before Watchung Hills Regional High School (WHRHS) discloses student record information to an organization, agency or person outside the school district unless WHRHS has been instructed by law or court to do otherwise.
