• School Records

    School records are an inherent part of a student’s formal education in the public school setting. They are used to collect, maintain and disseminate pertinent information. The Upper St. Clair School District (District) has adopted a policy and administrative regulations in accordance with both the regulations of the State Board of Education on Pupil Records, adopted July 12, 1974, amended July 15, 1977, and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Parents and eligible students (students who have reached the age of 18 or are emancipated minors) are accorded the following rights:
    1. To inspect, review and be given a copy of school records;

    2. To obtain a copy of the District’s policy and regulations regarding the collection, maintenance, and dissemination of school records upon written request to: 

    3. Mrs. Amy Pfender
      Director of Student Support Services

    5. To be informed of the transfer of records to officials of another school or school system upon notification of the student’s enrollment;
