FERPA = Family Education Rights and Privacy Act http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 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. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education re cords. 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 h ave transferred are "eligible students."

The second item is about leveraging CSU assets to get certain softwares and assessment tools. Departments struggle to pose appropriate questions regarding technology use. Some CSU campuses have subscriptions to programs like "Flashlight" which enable faculty to create surveys and assessments quickly and tally up results, along with statistics. This is important information for WASC evaluations and departmental reviews.
