Educational rights are the rights of a "parent," "adoptive parent," "guardian," or another court-appointed individual to make educational decisions on behalf of a minor child.
Education records are defined as those records that contain information directly related to a student and which are maintained by an educational agency or institution or by a party acting for the agency or institution. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children’s education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records.
SDUHSD staff members will not complete subjective ratings, letters, or recommendation forms for K-12 private school admission.
Educational records, such as transcripts, grades, attendance, etc. may be printed from the Aeries Parent Portal. Educational records that are not accessible to parents via the Aeries portal must be requested from the school registrar by the parent/guardian/educational rights holder. Due to student privacy rights, school staff may not release records to outside parties without educational rights holder permission.
Requests for records from a new school where a student is currently enrolling or attending should be addressed to the school registrar.
