What is FERPA:
FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Families and students at Ahfachkee School are entitled to specific rights that ensure the privacy of student records based on FERPA stipulations.
What is HIPPA:
HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. While one may not think it applies to schools there may be times that student record protection and student health record protection intersects. For additional information about this, please contact the school nurse and/or view the attached guidance document from the US Department of Education Privacy Technical Assistance Center.
