FERPA and legitimate educational interest

FERPA permits university employees to have access to student education records in which they have a legitimate educational interest. The fact that you are a university employee does not necessarily constitute a legitimate educational interest, nor does it provide you access to any and all education records. According to FERPA a school official has a legitimate education interest if the official needs to review the education record in order to fulfill his or her job responsibilities on behalf of the University. Faculty and staff should not access student academic records unless their job duties specifically require access. Student information should never be accessed for personal reasons or out of curiosity.
