    law that protects the privacy of student education records. It protects all records, paper and
    and includes video or audio tape and microfilm. Generally adult students must
    give consent for the
    release of school records and information. However, FERPA and the
    Education Code allow schools to
    disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties
    or under the following conditions
    including but not limited to: School officials with legitimate
    educational interest; Other schools to which
    a student is transferring; Specified officials for audit
    or evaluation purposes; Appropriate parties in
    connection with financial aid to a student;
    Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of
    the school; Accrediting organizations;
    To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
    Appropriate officials in cases of health
    and safety emergencies; and State and local authorities, within a
    juvenile justice system, pursuant
    to specific State law. (EC 49076, 49077; 34 CFR section 99.31)
