Student Medical Information (For Parents)

When you share medical information, you help your school care for your child’s health. Because medical information must be HIPAA or FERPA compliant, only authorized individuals can view a student’s specific medical information. For more information, ask your school nurse for information about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) .
