FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, protects the privacy of students' educational records. University personnel may be concerned about FERPA violations when discussing distressed students, however, FERPA does allow exceptions to privacy or the sharing of information when there are legitimate educational interests and/or health and safety concerns. Furthermore, while FERPA covers educational records, it does not include "observations" (unless they are stored electronically or in writing).
