Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act Overview

Learn about the legal privacy obligations that apply to school districts.

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is a legal framework that guides access to public sector information and safeguards personal privacy. It grants individuals the right to obtain records from government bodies, enhancing transparency, while also enforcing strict rules on how these bodies handle personal data, only allowing collection, use, and sharing under specific, lawful circumstances. FIPPA's core is to promote open governance while respecting privacy rights, detailing when information should be released or withheld.
