Attorney Anahid Hoonanian will review what school districts can, should and must do to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, as well as the confidentiality provisions of the IDEA. Topics she’ll cover include the scope of parents’ right to review records, when records can be disclosed without parent consent, what to do when parents refuse to consent and much more.
