FPCO Mission Statement

The Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) administers two federal laws that provide parents and students with certain privacy rights: the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA). In addition, FPCO administers the provisions in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that require local educational agencies that receive ESEA funds to provide military recruiters with contact information on students, unless their parents opt out of the disclosure.

May a social security number or other student identification number be listed as directory information?

A school may not designate a student’s social security number as directory information.  However, directory information may include a student’s user ID or other unique identifier used by the student to access or communicate in electronic systems, but only if the electronic identifier cannot be used to gain access to education records except when used in conjunction with one or more factors that authenticate the student’s identity, such as a personal identification number (PIN), password, or other factor known or possess only by the student or authorized user.
