The principal will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.
(2) Right to request amendment to the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate or misleading.

Additional information regarding procedures will be provided to parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
(3) Right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
