Letter to Anonymous, 113 LRP 35724 (FPCO 2013): The federal Department of Education’s Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) advised an attorney that school districts have the ability and authority to disclose a student’s educational records to a potential out-of-district placement as part of the school district’s attempt to secure an appropriate program under the IDEA.  In that circumstance, parental consent is not required before the school district can disclose personally identifiable information.
