  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records.  These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without con­sent.

    One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  A school official is a person employed by the school as an ad­ministrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board.  A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, audi­tor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educa­tion record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

    Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer. 

    For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).

As I enthusiastically accept this opportunity to advance our school, it is my personal and professional pledge to model, inspire, challenge, support and encourage every member of our school family to remain focused on student success.  This success is inclusive of academic achievement and character development; it is also guided by the principle that no one rises to low expectations.  
     All leadership transitions come with challenges, learning, and growth. Joseph E. Brown Middle School has the remarkable potential to develop life-long learners and produce forward thinkers that can make an impressive contribution to our society.  
     The mission of Atlanta Public School is to educate all students through academic excellence, preparing them for success in life, service and leadership. Therefore, our purpose is clear:  To ensure that all students will graduate with competitive 21st 
century skills and abilities.  
     The strategy is simple: Teach our students as if they are our own children. Armed with passion and purpose, I am challenged yet motivated to lead the school-based community and engage all stakeholders in the realization of the district’s goal for our students as we strategically and urgently focus on continuous school improvement.
