Family Educational Rights and Protection Act (FERPA) Information

When the State Department of Education (SDE) responds to requests for data that are at school or district level, the SDE does not release information that could identify a particular student. After a review of the relevant data sets, the SDE has determined that disclosure of such information would make individual student identities easily traceable. The FOIA exempts from disclosure “[e]educational records which are not subject to disclosure under the Family Educational Rights and Protection Act.” Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-210(b)(17). Therefore, the SDE redacts small numbers of statistical data--we place an asterisk where the cell count is less than or equal to five.
