Family Educational Rights and Privacy (FERPA) Guidelines

Tampa Truck Driving School is committed to the protection and confidentiality of student records by adhering closely to FERPA, a federal legislation established to regulate access and maintenance of student educational records.

FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their education records:

  • The right to inspect their education records (meaning, all records, with certain exceptions, maintained in any medium, which can identify the student).
  • The right to request an amendment of the records the student believes are inaccurate.
  • The right to control disclosures of their records except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent (it is important to note that all rights to access move to the student when that student is in a post-secondary education institution. Parents, spouses, and significant others have no inherent right to access student educational records).
  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged violations of FERPA rights.

As provided for in FERPA, a student’s personal information cannot be released to any other person without the written consent of the student. Photo identification will be required to access information. Tampa Truck Driving School, Student Services maintains official student records.

Under Section 76230 of the Education Code, current and former students have an absolute right of access to their own records. One exception, under Section 76231 of the Education Code, is that students may waive their right of access to confidential reference letters.

Under Section 76244 of the Education Code, TTDS must make a reasonable effort to notify a student in advance of the production of their records under subpoena.

The Federal Solomon Act requires colleges to release full directory information to the U.S. Armed Forces.
