We've cut through the complexity to provide a clear understanding of how FERPA relates to you and your students. Requesting and collecting FERPA releases and waivers is now streamlined in SCOIR for your convenience.
If you choose to collect releases and waivers through SCOIR, you can then decide when to begin prompting students to sign. If you would like parents to sign on behalf of students under the age of 18, you can indicate that in your settings as well.
Your Account Administrator can edit areas of the text in both the release and waiver to conform to your school's regulations and policies.
Students and parents can accept or decline the FERPA documents with the click of a button acting as an electronic signature, and you can view the status at any time. Teachers will also see the FERPA status of a student when a letter of recommendation is requested.
