Access to Student Records by Guardians ad Litem
Student records, Guardian ad Litem
This order establishes that guardians ad litem (GALs) appointed by a juvenile court judge are to be considered as ''parents'' under FERPA, including having the right to inspect and review education records and the right to consent to the release of education records. This is important to improve educational stability for children in foster care.
