FERPA Disclosure

FERPA Disclosure

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.  Health Appraisal Reports, Immunization Records, and weekly communicable disease reports are all considered part of your child’s student education records.  Reports recorded to the local health department all require voluntary consent from the parent or legal guardian for reporting.  MDHHS considers consent received unless written notification to object reporting is issued from the parent or legal guardian.

To ensure that all families understand these rights, the University of Michigan-Dearborn Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) requires explicit permission to share this information.

Petition Form

Petition Form

The Petition Form is utilized for change in schedule, exception to a policy and to withdrawal.  Please fill out the child's information, parent/guardian information with email along with the section(s) needed and the justification.  This can be turned into the front desk directly or email to umd-ececoffice@umich.edu.  Please allot for 30 days' notice when submitting a request.
