The webinar will be hosted by LeRoy Rooker the nation's leading authority on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As the director of the Department of Education's Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) for 21 years, he administered laws, oversaw production and policies designed to help protect the rights of America's 58 million students. He also directed the U.S. Department of Education's Family Policy Compliance Office when the new regulations were issued.
