The University of Nebraska High School (UNHS) complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regarding demographic and academic information. This information may not be released without the expressed consent of the student, except for information deemed public directory information. UNHS has designated the following information as public directory information: student’s name, dates of attendance, grade level, enrollment status (full-time or part-time), the most recent educational agency or institution attended, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, diplomas, honors and awards received.
UNHS administration will release public directory information to the admissions offices within the University system. This information may also be used in publications such as newsletters, honor roll or other recognition lists and the graduation program. Students and their parents/guardians have the right to request that public directory information not be used in these publications and may do so by writing to UNHS. If this is done, public directory information will be maintained in the student file and will not be released in any manner.
The FERPA policy also governs the release of student records for students under age 18 and students age 18 and older. Students 18 or older must provide UNHS written consent in order for parents or legal guardians to have access to their student records and/or information. They may do so by completing and submitting the Student Record Release Form.
