FERPA (Family Educational Rights and privacy Act)
Privacy of Student Records (FERPA)
In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Barber Institute of Texas School 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. Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct their record 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
Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, D.C. 20202-8520
Cumulative education records are maintained for five years or more after graduation or termination.
ANNUAL REPORTING OF CLERY ACT DISCLOSURES
The Barber Institute of Texas School provides a safe and healthy campus environment for students, employees, and the public who visit our campus. Therefore, BIT has issued this report to inform the Campus community, campus visitors, and the general public of the school’s policies and procedures for campus security and safety. Though emergencies and incidents of serious crime are almost non-existent at BIT, it is crucial that all members of the campus community know how to report such situations and understand our security operation. BIT safety policies emphasize open communication with students and employees and a close working relationship with property security, state and local law enforcement agencies.
The Campus Security and Safety Department maintains an incident report of all occurrences of crimes or emergencies reported on BIT campus and its surrounding public areas. These statistics are published annually (by October 1st of each year) by the Campus Security Director in compliance with the Federal Jeanne Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 (formerly the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990).
In compliance with the Act, each year by October 1, institutions must publish and distribute to current and prospective students, faculty and staff, an annual security report that includes statistics concerning the occurrence on campus of certain criminal offenses reported to campus officials and statements about campus safety policies, campus security education and prevention programs, alcohol and drug policies, sexual assault education and prevention programs, procedures for reporting sexual assaults, and procedures for handling reports of sexual assault.
DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION
Drug abuse is always prohibited at the school and is defined as “the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of a controlled substance, including alcohol.” The School’s Drug Free Awareness Program includes providing information regarding “Anti-Drug Abuse Community Service” and a copy of the Campus Security Policy to enrolling students. Off-campus services regarding Drug Abuse information and treatment are provided in the pamphlet. The school will notify the Department of Education within 30 days of an employee or student being involved in any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring at Barber Institute of Texas.
