Student Health Module

DoDEA recognizes that student health records are distinct from other educational records. As with the issues surrounding educational records, DoDEA also recognizes its responsibility in regard to the collection, maintenance, and dissemination of student health records and the protection of the privacy rights of students as governed by the Privacy Act, the Freedom of Information Act, and the Records Act. The following tip sheets outline the directions for entering student health information and follows all regulations regarding the protection and privacy of parents and students and are consistent with the requirements of the Privacy Act. Under this provision, a student’s health records are classified as private data and as such will be distributed only to parties with a need-to-know basis.
