PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Q: My son came home anxious about a lockdown drill they did in school. How should I discuss this with him?
A: Lockdown drills help students know what to do in an emergency that requires them to shelter inside the school. Explain to your son that his teacher and principal want to keep him and his classmates safe. That’s why the school holds drills to prepare the children for situations like intruders, fires, tornadoes, or earthquakes. Although it’s scary to think about emergencies, having a plan can make him feel more in control. Ask your son to name other ways we stay safe, such as wearing a seat belt in the car, looking both ways before crossing the street, or going indoors during a thunderstorm. He’ll realize that he knows how to do a lot of things that help to protect him. Note: If he continues to feel anxious, contact the school counselor for advice.

Jefferson Elementary School – October/November Band Newsletter
Beginner Band and Orchestra Students Start a New Year at Jefferson
Dear Band and Orchestra Parents:
The Jefferson Elementary School beginner band and orchestra for the 2018-2019 school year have been formed. During the month of September, students saw instruments demonstrated, tried out several instruments of their choice, selected an instrument to play and are now meeting for their first lessons. Thank you, parents for encouraging participation, obtaining an instrument, and purchasing supplies.
One of the most important aspects of successful participation in band and orchestra is the element of practice. By taking a few minutes each night, students can reinforce the material learned in lessons and refine their skills. Students that practice regularly at home, tend to get the most enjoyment out of playing an instrument. They look forward to rehearsals and performances and take a great deal of pride in performing to the best of their abilities. Remember, the skill of playing an instrument comes with the experience of using it.
I look forward to working with this year’s group!
Tom May Band/Orchestra Instructor

Remember: Pick Up and Drop Off Rules

When picking up, dropping off or waiting for a child, please beware of the traffic patterns and rules created to keep all children safe.
Students can be dropped off on Jefferson School Drive. If you plan to wait with your child, you must park on a side street or in the visitor parking lot in front of the school. Parents who wait with their children along the curb on Jefferson School Drive create a backup of traffic and an unsafe drop off for other parents and their children.
Jefferson School Drive is available for parking 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. For pick up at the end of the day, you may stop along the curb on Jefferson School Drive until your child joins you. Visitors and parents should only stop next to curbs that are not painted yellow and must stay with their vehicle. Follow all signs that are posted to prevent traffic backups. Many parents have arranged separate meeting areas on side streets.
Above all, be patient. I have watched traffic patterns at Jefferson for eight years. Drop off or pick up does not take a lot of time. I am in contact with the Janesville Police Department who also help keep our students safe by making sure everyone follows the patterns and rules described above. When everyone puts student safety first, the procedures work. If you have any questions please let our school office know.

Sincerely,
Mr. Krueger

SCHOOL DISTRICT OF JANESVILLE ANNUAL NOTICE OF SPECIAL EDUCATION REFERRAL AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES

Upon request, the School District of Janesville is required to evaluate a child for eligibility for special education services. A request for evaluation is known as a referral. When the district receives a referral, the district will appoint an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team to determine if the child has a disability, and if the child needs special education services. The district locates, identifies, and evaluates all children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private (including religious) schools, elementary schools and secondary schools located in the school district.

A physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker, or administrator of a social agency who reasonably believes a child brought to him or her for services is a child with a disability has a legal duty to refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides. Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform the child's parent that the referral will be made.

Others, including parents, who reasonably believe a child is a child with a disability may also refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides.

Referrals must be in writing and include the reason why the person believes the child is a child with a disability. A referral may be made by contacting Ms. Kimberli Peerenboom, Director of Pupil Services, School District of Janesville, at 608-743-5061, or by writing her at 527 S. Franklin Street, Janesville, WI, 53548.

School District of Janesville CONFIDENTIALITY OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH CHILD FIND ACTIVITIES

The School District of Janesville is required to locate, identify, and evaluate all children, with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools in the school district, and homeless children. The process of locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities is known as child find.

This agency conducts the following child find activities each year in the form of Early Childhood and Speech and Language Developmental Screenings. This notice informs parents of the records the school district will develop and maintain as part of its child find activities. This notice also informs parents of their rights regarding any records developed.

The school district gathers personally identifiable information on any child who participates in child find activities. Parents, teachers, and other professionals provide information to the school related to the child’s academic performance, behavior, and health. This information is used to determine whether the child needs special education services. Personally identifiable information directly related to a child and maintained by the school is a pupil record.

Pupil records include records maintained in any way including, but not limited to, computer storage media, video and audiotape, film, microfilm, and microfiche. Records maintained for personal use by a teacher and not available to others and records available only to persons involved in the psychological treatment of a child are not pupil records.

The school district maintains several classes of pupil records.

  • "Progress records" include grades, courses the child has taken, the child's attendance record, immunization records, required lead screening records, and records of school extra-curricular activities. Progress records must be maintained for at least five years after the child ceases to be enrolled.
  •  "Behavioral records" include such records as psychological tests, personality evaluations, records of conversations, written statements relating specifically to the pupil's behavior, tests relating specifically to achievement or measurement of ability, physical health records other than immunization and lead screening records, law enforcement officers' records, and other pupil records that are not "progress records." Law enforcement officers' records are maintained separately from other pupil records. Behavioral records may be maintained for no longer than one year after the child graduates or otherwise ceases to be enrolled, unless the parent specifies in writing that the records may be maintained for a longer period of time. The school district informs parents when pupil records are no longer needed to provide special education. At the request of the child's parents, the school district destroys the information that is no longer needed.
  • "Directory data" includes the student's name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, photographs, degrees and awards received, and the name of the school most recently previously attended by the student.
  • "Pupil physical health records" include basic health information about a pupil, including the pupil's immunization records, an emergency medical card, a log of first aid and medicine administered to the pupil, an athletic permit card, a record concerning the pupil's ability to participate in an education program, any required lead screening records, the results of any routine screening test, such as for hearing, vision or scoliosis, and any follow-up to the test, and any other basic health information, as determined by the state superintendent. Any pupil record relating to a pupil's physical health that is not a pupil physical health record is treated as a patient health care record under sections 146.81 to 146.84, Wisconsin Statutes. Any pupil record concerning HIV testing is treated as provided under section 252.15, Wisconsin Statutes.

Principal Krueger PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
 

Put memory to work!

Many card games build working, or short-term, memory. This kind of memory lets your youngster remember and use information he learned recently. Play Go Fish or Crazy Eights together. By keeping track of which cards have been played, your child will make better moves!

Taking the lead

You may have heard the phrase “a born leader.” But leadership skills, such as speaking up and taking initiative, can be learned. Encourage your youngster to practice during group projects. For example, she might suggest a way to divide up tasks or offer to give the introduction during the group’s class presentation.

Busy parents can volunteer

Whether you have a little time or a lot, you can pitch in at your child’s school. Ask teachers PTA officers for ways to volunteer that fit your schedule. Maybe you’ll listen to students read for 20 minutes during your lunch break or compile families’ book catalog orders on the weekend.

Remember: Pick Up and Drop Off Rules

When picking up, dropping off or waiting for a child, please beware of the traffic patterns and rules created to keep all children safe. Students can be dropped off on Jefferson School Drive.

BAND/ORCHESTRA INFORMATION

Dear Parent/Guardian: The Band and Orchestra students are off to a great start!

Can you imagine December festivities accompanied by silence? Your student has begun the journey beyond simply listening or enjoying music, as important as they are, towards becoming a music performer; an artist in a sense, open to a wider understanding and appreciation of all types of music. As you and your family enjoy all the musical opportunities this season has to offer, please continue to encourage the student musician, who is beginning to take an active part in making music as an art form and discovering their talent. The music department sends best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season to you and yours. Through music our children are living a richer life filled with expression, appreciation and creative growth. MAKE A JOYFUL SOUND!

Public School Open Enrollment Timelines

The State of Wisconsin has announced the application period for open enrollment (also known as public school choice) begins in February for the following school year. Open Enrollment laws permit children to attend a public school in a school district other than the one in which they live.

The open enrollment application period for the 2019-2020 school year is from February 4, 2019 – April 30, 2019. Parents are encouraged to apply on-line at dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment. Although on-line application is recommended, paper applications may be obtained from the Department of Public Instruction or any school district after February 4, 2019 and must be delivered (hand-delivery is recommended) to the nonresident school district during the application period. Paper applications to attend Janesville must be submitted to the Open Enrollment Specialist in the New Student Enrollment Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on April 30th(a postmark does not constitute timely submission). Applications turned in prior to February 4th will be returned as not valid and must be resubmitted after February 4th but before April 30th at 4:00 p.m.

Enrollment in a requested school or program is subject to space and other limitations and is not guaranteed. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent. Habitual truancy may result in recommendation for the student to return to their home district.

Under School District of Janesville board policy, students who attended the district under open enrollment the previous year are not required to reapply for the following school year.

An application is required for each sibling in the family. For example, if a family has one child in elementary school that has been approved for open enrollment and a new student entering kindergarten next year, the student entering kindergarten must apply for open enrollment in order to attend the School District of Janesville.

Parents will be informed in June whether their open enrollment applications have been approved or denied. The student’s school or program placement will be provided in June.

SCHOOL DISTRICT OF JANESVILLE ANNUAL NOTICE OF SPECIAL EDUCATION REFERRAL AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES

Upon request, the School District of Janesville is required to evaluate a child for eligibility for special education services. A request for evaluation is known as a referral. When the district receives a referral, the district will appoint an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team to determine if the child has a disability, and if the child needs special education services. The district locates, identifies, and evaluates all children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private (including religious) schools, elementary schools and secondary schools located in the school district. A physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker, or administrator of a social agency who reasonably believes a child brought to him or her for services is a child with a disability has a legal duty to refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides. Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform the child's parent that the referral will be made. Others, including parents, who reasonably believe a child is a child with a disability may also refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides. Referrals must be in writing and include the reason why the person believes the child is a child with a disability. A referral may be made by contacting Ms. Kimberli Peerenboom, Director of Pupil Services, School District of Janesville, at 608-743-5061, or by writing her at 527 S. Franklin Street, Janesville, WI, 53548. School District of Janesville


CONFIDENTIALITY OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH CHILD FIND ACTIVITIES

The School District of Janesville is required to locate, identify, and evaluate all children, with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools in the school district, and homeless children. The process of locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities is known as child find. This agency conducts the following child find activities each year in the form of Early Childhood and Speech and Language Developmental Screenings. This notice informs parents of the records the school district will develop and maintain as part of its child find activities. This notice also informs parents of their rights regarding any records developed.

The school district gathers personally identifiable information on any child who participates in child find activities. Parents, teachers, and other professionals provide information to the school related to the child’s academic performance, behavior, and health. This information is used to determine whether the child needs special education services. Personally identifiable information directly related to a child and maintained by the school is a pupil record. Pupil records include records maintained in any way including, but not limited to, computer storage media, video and audiotape, film, microfilm, and microfiche. Records maintained for personal use by a teacher and not available to others and records available only to persons involved in the psychological treatment of a child are not pupil records.

  • The school district maintains several classes of pupil records. "Progress records" include grades, courses the child has taken, the child's attendance record, immunization records, required lead screening records, and records of school extra-curricular activities. Progress records must be maintained for at least five years after the child ceases to be enrolled. 
  • "Behavioral records" include such records as psychological tests, personality evaluations, records of conversations, written statements relating specifically to the pupil's behavior, tests relating specifically to achievement or measurement of ability, physical health records other than immunization and lead screening records, law enforcement officers' records, and other pupil records that are not "progress records." Law enforcement officers' records are maintained separately from other pupil records. Behavioral records may be maintained for no longer than one year after the child graduates or otherwise ceases to be enrolled, unless the parent specifies in writing that the records may be maintained for a longer period of time. The school district informs parents when pupil records are no longer needed to provide special education. At the request of the child's parents, the school district destroys the information that is no longer needed.
  • "Directory data" includes the student's name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, photographs, degrees and awards received, and the name of the school most recently previously attended by the student. "Pupil physical health records" include basic health information about a pupil, including the pupil's immunization records, an emergency medical card, a log of first aid and medicine administered to the pupil, an athletic permit card, a record concerning the pupil's ability to participate in an education program, any required lead screening records, the results of any routine screening test, such as for hearing, vision or scoliosis, and any follow-up to the test, and any other basic health information, as determined by the state superintendent. Any pupil record relating to a pupil's physical health that is not a pupil physical health record is treated as a patient health care record under sections 146.81 to 146.84, Wisconsin Statutes. Any pupil record concerning HIV testing is treated as provided under section 252.15, Wisconsin Statutes.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and section 118.125, Wisconsin Statutes, afford parents and students over 18 years of age ("eligible students") the following rights with respect to education records:

  • The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of receipt of the request. Parents or eligible students should submit to the school principal [or appropriate school official] a written request that identifies the records(s) they wish to inspect. The principal will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. The school district will comply with the request without unnecessary delay and before any meeting about an individualized education program, or any due process hearing, and in no case more than 45 days after the request has been made. If any record includes information on more than one child, the parents of those children have the right to inspect and review only the information about their child or to be informed of that specific information. Upon request, the school district will give a parent or eligible student a copy of the progress records and a copy of the behavioral records. Upon request, the school district will give the parent or eligible student a list of the types and locations of education records collected, maintained, or used by the district for special education. The school district will respond to reasonable requests for explanations and interpretations of the records. A representative of the parent may inspect and review the records.
  • The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Parents or eligible students may ask [Name of] School District to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the district decides not to amend the record, the district will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and the right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information in the student's education records, except to the extent that federal and state law authorize disclosure without consent. The exceptions are stated in 34 CFR 99.31, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act regulations; Sec. 9528, PL107-110, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001; and section 118.125(2)(a) to (m) and sub. (2m), Wisconsin Statutes. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosures to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the district as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel); a person serving on the school board; a person or company with whom the district has contracted to perform a special task (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); or a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the district discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. Also the district discloses "directory data" without consent, unless the parent notifies the district that it may not be released without prior parental consent.
  • The right to file a complaint with the U. S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the District to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20202-4605.

DISTRITO ESCOLAR DE JANESVILLE CONFIDENCIALIDAD DE INFORMACIÓN DE IDENTIFICACIÓN PERSONAL OBTENIDA MEDIANTE ACTIVIDADES DE INTERVENCIÓN TEMPRANA O “CHILD FIND” Distrito Escolar de Janesville requiere ubicar, identificar, y evaluar a todos los menores con discapacidades, incluyendo a menores con discapacidades que asisten a escuelas privadas en el distrito escolar, y menores sin hogar. El proceso de ubicar, identificar y evaluar a menores con discapacidades es conocido como intervención temprana o “child find”. Esta agencia lleva a cabo las siguientes actividades de intervención temprana cada año. Este aviso informa a los padres de los registros que el distrito escolar creará y mantendrá como parte de sus actividades de intervención temprana. Este aviso también informa a los padres de sus derechos sobre cualquier registro creado. El distrito escolar reúne información de identificación personal de cualquier menor que participa en las actividades de intervención temprana. Los padres, maestros, y otros profesionales proporcionan información a la escuela en relación al desempeño académico, conducta y salud del menor. Esta información es usada para determinar si el menor necesita servicios especiales de educación. La información de identificación personal directamente relacionada con el menor y mantenida por la escuela es un registro de alumno. Los registros de alumno incluyen datos mantenidos en cualquier medio incluyendo, entre otros, medios de almacenamiento informáticos, cintas de video y audio, película, microfilm, y microficha. Los registros mantenidos para uso personal por un maestro y que no se encuentran disponibles para otros y los registros disponibles sólo para las personas involucradas en el tratamiento psicológico de un menor no son registros de alumno. El distrito escolar mantiene diferentes clases de registros de alumno.  Los "Registros de Progreso" incluyen notas, clases que el menor ha tomado, el registro de asistencia del menor, registros de vacunaciones, registros obligatorios de detección de plomo, y registros de actividades extracurriculares de la escuela. Los registros de progreso deben ser mantenidos por lo menos cinco años después que el menor deje de matricularse.  Los "Registros de Conducta" incluyen registros como pruebas psicológicas, evaluaciones de personalidad, registros de conversaciones, declaraciones escritas relacionadas específicamente con la conducta del menor, pruebas relacionadas específicamente al logro o medición de la capacidad, registros de salud física aparte de registros de vacunación y detección de plomo, registros de agentes del orden público, y otros registros de estudiante que no sean “registros de progreso.” Los registros de agentes del orden público se mantienen separadamente de otros registros del alumno. Los registros de conducta pueden ser mantenidos por un lapso no mayor de un año después de la graduación del menor o después que el mismo deje de matricularse, a menos que el padre especifique por escrito que los registros pueden ser mantenidos por un periodo de tiempo mayor. El distrito escolar informa a los padres cuando los registros de alumno ya no son necesarios para proporcionar educación especial. A solicitud de los padres del menor, el distrito escolar destruye la información que ya no es necesaria.  Los "datos de directorio" incluyen el nombre del estudiante, dirección, teléfono listado, fecha y lugar de nacimiento, campo principal de estudios, participación en actividades y deportes oficialmente reconocidos, peso y altura de los miembros de los equipos atléticos, fechas de asistencia, fotografías, grados y premios recibidos, y el nombre de la escuela más reciente a la que haya asistido previamente el estudiante. Los "registros de salud física del estudiante" incluyen información básica de salud sobre un alumno, incluyendo los registros de vacunación del alumno, una tarjeta de emergencia médica, un registro de primeros auxilios y medicina administrada al alumno, y una tarjeta de permiso atlético, un registro sobre la capacidad del alumno de participar en un programa de educación, cualquier registro obligatorio de detección de plomo, los resultados de cualquier prueba de detección de rutina, como una prueba de audición, visión o escoliosis, y cualquier seguimiento a dicha prueba, y cualquier otra información básica de salud, como sea determinado por el superintendente del estado. Cualquier registro del alumno relacionado con la salud física del mismo que no sea un registro de salud física del alumno es tratado como un registro de cuidado de salud del paciente según las secciones 146.81 a 146.84, de los Estatutos de Wisconsin. Cualquier registro del alumno sobre prueba de VIH es tratado como se proporciona en la sección 252.15, de los Estatutos de Wisconsin. La Ley de Derechos Educativos de la Familia y la Confidencialidad (FERPA, por sus siglas en inglés), la Ley de Educación para Individuos con Discapacidades (IDEA), y la sección 118.125, de los Estatutos de Wisconsin, proporcionan a los padres y a los estudiantes mayores de 18 años ("estudiantes aptos") los siguientes derechos respecto a sus registros de educación:  El derecho a inspeccionar y revisar los registros de educación del estudiante dentro de los 45 días posteriores a la recepción de la solicitud. Los padres o los estudiantes aptos deben enviar al director de la escuela [or appropriate school official] una solicitud escrita que identifique el(los) registro(s) que ellos desean inspeccionar. El director puede hacer arreglos para el acceso y notificar al padre o al estudiante apto sobre el momento y lugar donde los registros pueden ser inspeccionados. El distrito escolar cumplirá con la solicitud sin retrasos innecesarios y antes de cualquier reunión sobre un programa educativo individualizado, o cualquier proceso de audiencia pendiente, y de ninguna manera después de cumplirse los 45 días posteriores a la fecha de la solicitud. Si cualquier registro incluye información sobre más de un menor, los padres de dichos menores tienen derecho a inspeccionar y revisar sólo la información sobre su niño o a ser notificados sobre esa información específica. A solicitud, el distrito escolar entregará al padre o al estudiante apto una copia de los registros de progreso y una copia de los registros de conducta. A solicitud, el distrito escolar entregará al padre o al estudiante apto una lista de los tipos y la ubicación de los registros de educación recolectados, mantenidos, o usados por el distrito para educación especial. El distrito escolar responderá a las solicitudes razonables de explicaciones e interpretación de los registros. Un representante del padre puede inspeccionar y revisar los registros.  El derecho a solicitar la enmienda de los registros de educación que el padre o estudiante apto crea que son incorrectos o engañosos. Los padres o estudiantes aptos pueden pedir que el distrito escolar de [name of school district] corrija un registro que según ellos es incorrecto o engañoso. Ellos deben escribir al director de la escuela, y claramente identificar la parte del registro que desean cambiar, y especificar por qué es incorrecta o engañosa. Si el distrito decide no corregir el registro, el distrito notificará al padre o al estudiante apto de la decisión y el derecho a una audiencia sobre la solicitud de enmienda. Información adicional sobre los procedimientos de audiencia será proporcionada al padre o al estudiante apto cuando se le notifique del derecho a una audiencia.  El derecho a consentir la divulgación de la información de identificación personal en los registros de educación del estudiante, salvo en la medida que las leyes federal y estatal autoricen la divulgación sin consentimiento. Las excepciones están indicadas en 34 CFR 99.31, reglamentos de la Ley de Derechos Educativos de la Familia y la Confidencialidad; Sec. 9528, PL107-110, Ley Que Ningún Niño Se Quede Atrás – o ”No Child Left Behind” del 2001; y la sección 118.125(2)(a) a (m) y sub. (2m), de los Estatutos de Wisconsin. Una excepción que permite la divulgación sin consentimiento es la divulgación a los funcionarios de la escuela con intereses legítimamente educativos. Un funcionario de la escuela es una persona empleada por el distrito como un administrador, supervisor, instructor, o miembro de apoyo del equipo (incluyendo equipo médico o de salud y personal de la unidad de orden público); una persona miembro de la junta directiva de la escuela; una persona o compañía la cual ha sido contratada por el distrito para realizar una tarea especial (como por ejemplo un abogado, auditor, consultor médico, o terapeuta); o un padre o estudiante miembro de un comité oficial, como por ejemplo un comité disciplinario o de agravios, o que ayuda a otro funcionario de la escuela a desarrollar sus labores. Un funcionario de la escuela tiene un interés legitimamente educativo si éste necesita revisar un registro educativo para cumplir con su responsabilidad profesional. A solicitud, el distrito divulga los registros educativos sin consentimiento a los funcionarios de otro distrito escolar en el cual un estudiante busca o pretende matricularse. También, el distrito divulga "datos de directorio" sin consentimiento, a no ser que el padre notifique al distrito que estos no pueden ser divulgados sin previo permiso de los padres. El derecho a presentar una queja con el Departamento de Educación de los E.U. sobre presuntas fallas del distrito en el cumplimiento de la Ley FERPA. El nombre y dirección de la Oficina que administra la Ley de Derechos Educativos de la Familia y la Confidencialidad o FERPAes: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20202-4605.
