Student Privacy

File Access & Information Release/FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy follows all FERPA regulations. Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy provides each student, or parent or guardian of a dependent student, with a “Consent of Access to Education Records” form that they may complete should the student wish any third party source to have access to any of their educational records. Any and all information requests about any form of student information should be directed to the Administration Office.

All students and parents or guardians of a dependent minor are guaranteed access to their cumulative records. A staff member will be available, upon appointment, to review the file contents and provide interpretation as necessary. Students are required to review the documentation of attendance and academics at the end of each month for accuracy. Any errors or adjustments must be approved by the Administration who will then make the corrections. Each student will receive a copy of the documentation for his/her personal files. Student records are maintained for a minimum of five (5) years.

The requirements of the privacy act provide that information contained in the file of a student cannot be released to anyone without the written consent of the student, or in the case of a minor student, that students’ parent(s) or guardians. Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy provides and permits access to student and other school records as required for any accreditation process initiated by the school or the Department of Education, the State of Idaho, NACCAS, or in response to any directive of such Commission.
