2 Confidentiality

3 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

4 FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."

5 Provision of Copy of Records Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.

6 Amendment of Records at Parent’s Request Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.

7 Release of Information Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):

9 Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance.

12 Destruction of Records All of the student’s special education records are to be maintained until the student exits the school system. Once the student exits, the records are to be maintained for five years. At all times, records are to be kept in a locked area and kept confidential. Once the records have been maintained for the five-year period, contact the Special Services Center for the procedure to destroy the records. Records may not be destroyed without parent notification and when destroyed, they myst be burned or shredded.All of the student’s special education records are to be maintained until the student exits the school system.

13 Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity DisorderAttention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder

14 Characteristics What is Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)? Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurological disorder. Students with ADHD demonstrate significant impairment related to inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity compared to average children of the same age.

15 Diagnostic Criteria for ADHD The following symptoms are listed in the DSM-IV and a re used to diagnose ADHD. At least six of these symptoms must be displayed in a number of settings, persist over six months, and must have been observed prior to age seven in order for the diagnosis to be made.The following symptoms are listed in the DSM-IV and a re used to diagnose ADHD.

30 Any person who does not recognize talents as well as weaknesses that make children with ADHD / ADD different, will find it difficult to be supportive. Alice Mae Smith

31 Response to Intervention

32 Best Practices Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires a research based program to be used in reading before identification. The goal of the Response to Intervention (RtI) model is to address deficits as soon as the interferences of learning are noticed instead of waiting for the students to fail. It is important to utilize the interventions in Tier Two to be able to correctly identify what program a student needs and / or to totally remediate the deficit.Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires a research based program to be used in reading before identification.
