AACRAO FERPA Services

AACRAO Senior Fellow LeRoy Rooker is the nation’s leading authority on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a comprehensive federal law that provides privacy protections for student education records. As the director of the Department of Education's Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) for 21 years, he administered laws and policies designed to help protect the rights of America’s 58 million students. Mr. Rooker is well known in the postsecondary world because of his extensive outreach to the higher education community while at the Department of Education. His many appearances at state, regional, and national meetings were not to be missed sessions and we are honored that he continues to share his expertise, through AACRAO FERPA Consulting.
