ASA conforms to security standards and Information Technology practices to assure the integrity of data and privacy of its clients. Access to information is restricted to staff who have a legitimate business need for the information.
Social Security Numbers
ASA follows appropriate procedures in collecting, maintaining and disseminating social security numbers of students and alumni.
FERPA
ASA adheres to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which generally prohibits the release of student education records without student permission. However, FERPA does permit the release of public or “directory” information about students. According to FERPA, parents have the right to inspect and copy any and all school student records of that parent’s child. ASA will grant parents the right to review and copy their child’s records within a reasonable time and no more than 15 days after the date of the request.
