Indiana law makes one personally liable, with no protection from IU, for violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Faculty need to be aware that practices that could potentially reveal individual student grades to others, such as sending grade spreadsheets to the entire class, posting their working gradebook to their website, or just storing information containing student names, UIDs, and grade information on their computer and not in their protected network storage space, may incur such liability. The links below provide information as to the specific polices. Consult with the registrar if you have any questions about permissible practices under FERPA.
