Cultivating Support and Overcoming Personnel Barriers
Identifying Barriers and Legal Issues
Joint Guidance on the Application of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)And the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)To Student Health Records
Overview of FERPA:
Federal Law that protects the privacy of students’ “education records.”“Education Records” is broadly defined to mean those records that are: (1) directly related to a student, and (2) maintained by and educational agency
Overview of HIPAA:
Protects the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information.
1. Relative advantage
2. Compatibility with existing
values and practices
3. Simplicity and ease of use
5. Observable results
If a public high school employs a health care provider that bills Medicaid electronically for services provided to a student under the IDEA, the school is a HIPAA covered entity and would be subject to the HIPAA requirements concerning transactions.

Where FERPA and HIPAA May Intersect:
When a school provides health care to students in the normal course of business, such as through its health clinic, it is also a “health care provider” as defined by HIPAA

Confidentiality and privacy are related, but distinct concepts.

Color Vision Assessment
“Any patient information learned by the nurse during the course of treatment must be safeguarded by the nurse. Such information may only be disclosed to other members of the health care team for health care purposes [education purposes].
should be shared only with the student/guardian’s informed consent, when legally required or where failure to disclose the information could result in significant harm.”
“Privacy, related to student’s expectation and right to be treated with dignity and respect. Effective nurse-patient relationships are built on trust.” Only disclose if there is a legitimate “need to know.” Any breach of this trust, even inadvertent, damages the particular nurse-patient relationship and the general trustworthiness of the profession of nursing.
Be aware of and comply with district policy DH(Local).
Nurses must recognize that they have an ethical and legal obligation to maintain student privacy and confidentiality at all times.
Nurses are strictly prohibited from transmitting by way of any electronic media any student-related image. In addition, nurses are restricted from transmitting any information that may be reasonably anticipated to violate student rights to confidentiality or privacy, or otherwise degrade or embarrass the student.
Do not take photos or videos of students on personal devices, including cell phones.
Follow district policy for taking photographs using employer-provided devices.
Maintain professional boundaries in the use of electronic media. Use caution when having online social contact with former students.
Do not post disparaging remarks about employers or co-workers.
Do not post content or otherwise speak on behalf of the district.
