In reading FERPA, it seems the law is speaking of student records such as grades, credits taken, etc. And these rights are only applicable when the student is attending school.
"The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)(20 U.S.C.§ 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."
Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance."
Obviously, Springboro City Schools treasurer Terrah Floyd is not in agreement with your assessment.

"In the district document reviewed by EAGnews, Springboro Treasurer Terrah Floyd acknowledges that the student information Wray used to send her email was protected under Ohio state law and the federal government’s Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)."

So, she would appear at a KKK or Neo-Nazi rally as long as they shared her paranoia about Common Core?

Quite obviously you've never had face-to-face conversation with Sonny Thomas or else you wouldn't have posted such garbage.
Read his Twitter feed, you dumb, educated fool. Just today he tweeted about Jews being creepy, the "Negrification" of America, GMO conspiracy nonsense, etc.

Why would I ever want to have a face-to-face conversation with such a person?

Btw, I do wonder if Kelly Kohls is also a 911 conspiracy nut. The Institute on the Constitution pushes 911 conspiracy theories, and your Sonny has 911 conspiracy garbage on his website. She has some very weird friends.

As we glide through another adult centric version of "As the Stomach Churns", who is speaking for the children?
The union hucksters, the political hacks who use the children as pawns in their own advancement, the parents who have been sold a bill of goods, who stands up for the children?
Our record of scoring on the Ohio Achievement Math tests in the 8th grade is abysmal and has been for over a decade. We seem mired in that we can only seem to muster 20-30% of our students who can garner at least 75% of the material.
Our record of scoring on the Ohio Achievement Science test in the 8th grade is not much better over the past decade where again only 20-30% of the students taking the test were able to answer at least 75% of the questions correct.
Where is this record leading our children and their families? Phony euphemistic terms for failure are still failure. And that failure belongs to all of us who go along with the education union proclaiming that 32% on an achievement test is PROFICIENT.
We are mostly adults and should begin acting like such for the benefit of those who place their trust in us each day, the children.

Look, I really have no time to dig in to your Kelly Kohls-inspired paranoia concerning Common Core. I will continue to point out that your Kelly Kohls has very close relationships with people who share her paranoia about Common Core, and also have paranoia regarding "who really did 911" and Jews and black people. And GMO. And FEMA camps. And the United Nations.

It's all about the paranoia with you people.

Jan 21,2014 - KINGS MILLS, Ohio - A teacher made a disabled fifth-grader crawl to the bathroom and otherwise abused her at Columbia Elementary School, the girl’s parents say. Amy and Michael McClellan are suing the Kings Local School District in federal court and claim district officials and police conducted multiple investigations and never told the parents.

On top of that, the school district paid off the teacher and gave her a recommendation to go away, the McClellans' attorney says. Hannah McClellan has a rare condition called CDG (Congenital disorder of glycosylation), which involves the brain shrinking. She was in Kings Local special education classes four years ago.

The suit claims Hannah and four others were abused by teacher Amanda Kitcho. "Hannah was a happy, joyful, loving child. Every year she wanted to be her teachers," said Amy McClellan. That changed in Kitcho’s class, Hannah’s mother said. "When she was in this class, it did not take her long to say,'I hate school. I don't want to go there anymore.’ And, she stopped talking," Amy McClellan said.

The lawsuit alleges traumatic abuse and neglect.

Hannah needed a special chair at school, but it became a form of punishment, her father says. "It appears that the nylon handles were twisted around in an incorrect manner in the back of the chair and duct-taped to physically restrain her," Michael McClellan said. Hannah also used a walker, but the McClellans claim she was often forced to crawl - the lawsuit says - "like a dying dog to get to the side of the road."

"In terms of the horror factor, the shock factor, this case is dramatic," said the McClellans’ attorney, Chris Finney. It was Finney who first told the parents about the abuse. He sued to get public records, including nine depositions and three separate investigations. "The parents were left entirely out of the loop," Finney said. The initial investigation began in October 2011 after a teacher's aide reported allegations of inappropriate behavior in a multiple-handicapped classroom.

Kitcho was allowed to quietly leave the district, Finney said. "The school board just paid her to leave and then gave her a glowing letter of recommendation," the attorney said.

Kings Superintendent Valerie Browning emailed the following statement to WCPO: "At this time the district nor our attorneys have seen this lawsuit. When we do we will be reviewing it with our board of education.”

There has been no comment so far from Kitcho.

The suit seeks money for damages and to cover Hannah's future treatment. She is now in the eighth grade and a cheerleader in Idaho.

Finney also wants rules changed so parents are immediately part of the process when claims of abuse are investigated.

Springboro Families, Taxpaying Homeowners, and all Citizens for Responsible Spending have much success to celebrate as we reflect on the progress that Educate Springboro has made in the past two years, maintaining fiscal integrity in our local school government, while being honest about what is needed through 2017! On November 5, 2013, voters sent a strong message of support for Children First Budget and Reduced Renewal Levy and Educate Springboro’s endorsement of community member business man, Charles Anderson, as the Number One BOE elected official, who has the greatest Professional ability to be open to advice and information from our current board members, David Petroni and Jim Rigano, whose Vision of Reform, is leading our students’ 21st century education opportunities in the direction of highest academic achievement potential; and away from status quo business as usual failed practices of the past. Welcome Aboard, Mr.Anderson!
Springboro Parents are expecting a lot in 2014 from board members Mr. Anderson, Mr. Petroni, and Mr. Rigano, as they work together toward the difficult challenge of prompting our two, reluctant-to-change, retired educators, Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey, to get on board with our school district’s new business/educational philosophy of Children First Budget. It’s for our children, our community and toward a better future for our schools! How can any ONE
of our FIVE board representatives NOT get on board with this winning agenda, putting Students FIRST, while maintaining fiscal integrity, AND being honest with taxpayers?
Special Thanks and Great Appreciation are due our departing board member, Kelly Kohls, whose four years of awesome service to our schools and community, as BOE elected official, has helped lead our school district to this unprecedented position of “celebration” of Increased Pay for every School Employee, and Reduced taxes for every Springboro family, with Renewal levy saving Taxpayers $6.5 million over the five year life of the levy, while continuing to generate surplus! Hooray for Us!
People in this community should stay alert for opportunities to remind Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey that we got a good thing going here in our Springboro schools and community, a Win-Win agreement with both the School Community of Employees and the Community of Taxpayers benefitting from our board’s Vision of Reform and applauding the progress made in the last two years by our school board and school district leaders, including Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano! Thank You, Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano! Please know of our continued support of our school district’s new philosophy of Children First Budget Reform/Levy Alternatives, as you join the new board members in facing the difficult challenges of the education business that lie ahead in 2014!
People in this community should stay alert for opportunities in the board room to remind Our retired educators, Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey, that no matter how many times they “vow to the SEA to put things back the way they were in the year 2000…..” you will NEVER convince Springboro taxpayers, who are moving PAST old outdated status quo, in the direction of Educate Springboro’s VISION of REFORM for our school children and community!
Taxpayers will settle for nothing less than FIVE board members who Stand Up for Our Students FIRST!….. and that is a much better way than the SEA way of pressuring Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey to Stand AGAINST Students First, in favor of putting emphasis on the financial gain of adult union employees first!
Happy Valentines Day!

Guess WHO in our community has MORE money in his Budget (at taxpayers expense) on hand to waste, than he has TIME to listen to taxpayers freely speaking their minds at a board meeting or in an e-mail for free?
Maybe he could take up golfing to Facilitate himself with the Teachers Union/Firefighters Union/Police Officers Union, instead of wasting $12,000 Plus on HIRING an outside facilitator to come into our school district to schedule meetings with these Union members
and pro-levy supporters, asking the TOUGH Questions such as: "Where Are the Values of the Springboro beliefs of community taxpayers?"
Did you know that school superintendent Mr. Petrey wants the Board of Education members to bless this waste of $12,000 of Taxpayers money to interrogate ALL stakeholders in Springboro to find out "what are the Values in Beliefs of Springboro Taxpayers?

It's true..... Mr. Petrey wants to waste our hard earned school tax dollars to hire an outside facilitator to set up and meet with his Focus Groups, charging Taxpayers to confess our Values and Beliefs so that the union teachers can determine the SEA's perceived un-met needs of the school district, so that this SEA/MSA manufactured budget crisis can be addressed in the five year forecast that is up for review by the new board in April.

Do You think Mr. Petrey should waste our Money seeking out the opinions of Springboro citizens (including Sonny Thomas and Kelly Kohls) by hiring this outside facilitator group to come into our school district and survey opinions of Taxpayers, when Taxpayers can speak freely of our concerns on the new Sonny Thomas radio show and Taxpayers can speak freely in the public school board meetings, bringing concerns and questions directly to the attention of our five BOE elected officials under the leadership of Mr.Anderson, Board President?
