The guide provides an overview of FERPA, as it discusses the act's restrictions on information sharing and exceptions to these restrictions, explains recordkeeping requirements under the act, and summarizes recent changes to the regulations for implementing FERPA. Examples are provided to illustrate some key points. The guide also explores the role of multiagency agreements in facilitating information sharing and considers one effective program that relies on such agreements. Sources of technical assistance are listed, including a summary of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's information sharing initiatives. FERPA regulations are appended. In addition, four appendixes present information for schools, other youth-serving agencies and organizations, and the juvenile justice and related systems to use in developing a juvenile justice network that will enable them to work together to address the problems of youth who are delinquent or at risk of becoming delinquent.
