The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, prescribes the conditions under which information about students can be released. It is the policy of York Technical College to follow the guidelines in order to protect the privacy of its students. The following statement of student rights is made under the provisions of the Act and is afforded to all eligible students
One exception, which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, collection agent, The National Student Clearinghouse, or Tuition Management Systems); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.
A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the College discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
