Letter to Vermont Department of Health Regarding FERPA-March 2005

Letter explaining that, while a school may disclose PII from education records under the health or safety emergency exception if it has determined, on a case-by-case basis, that a specific situation presents imminent danger or threat to students or other members of the community, FERPA does not permit the routine disclosure of immunization records to State health departments, without parental consent.
