Privacy of Student Records (FERPA)
In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, VIBE Barber College does not release information pertaining to student cumulative record nor publish or sell “directory information” without written consent from the student or parent/guardian if the student is a dependent minor. All records will be maintained in the Administrator’s offices. Only instructors and the Director may have access to these files. The school guarantees the rights of students and parents (if applicable) to have access to the cumulative records and have proper supervision and interpretation of those records when they are being reviewed. Access to records must be requested in writing, arranged previously and a staff member must be present while the records are being reviewed. Copies of file documents may be obtained at a cost of fifteen cents per copy. Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
If the student is still not satisfied with the school's actions they may file a complaint with
