Information for Families

Congratulations--having a son or daughter admitted to the Plan II Honors Program is a big accomplishment, both for the student and for the parents who have guided them to this point. College is a time of great challenges and personal discovery for children and parents. The parents handbook is meant to answer basic questions parents may have as well as to provide useful references that we hope will ease your transition from primary director to consultant and supporter of your child’s new life.  We look forward to you joining us in the Fall at the Plan II brunch and model classes on the Sunday of Family Weekend!

FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, is a federal law that pertains to the release of and access to student educational records. The law, also known as the Buckley Amendment, applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the US Department of Education.

If a student wishes to sign a waiver allowing a Plan II advisor to discuss the student's academic record with his/her parents, the student must come to the Plan II Honors office and see an advisor. The form will be kept in the student's file and will be valid for one year. The student must sign a form each year the student wishes to waive the FERPA privacy rights.
