Educational Rights for 18 Year Old Students

When a student turns 18 years old, or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights formerly given to parents under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student (“eligible student”). The FERPA statute is found at 20 U.S.C. § 1232g and the FERPA regulations are found at 34 CFR Part 99. The eligible student has the right to have access to his or her education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, the right to have control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records, and the right to file a complaint with the US Department of Education.
Although the rights under FERPA have been given to the student, a school may still disclose some information from an “eligible student’s” education records to the parents of the student, without the student’s consent

Support Groups

Considered by most here to be the heart and soul of Sunset, more than 90% of Sunset students participate in group. Students learn to listen and relate with one another while talking about their experiences. Topics include developing trust and issues of tolerance and equality. Participating in group helps many Sunset students gain perspective about their understanding and serves to help all students feel like they belong to the Sunset community. Our program is a leader in the district and in the country and has received favorable reviews by newspapers, and state and county educational representatives. Sunset High School's Support Group Program has earned Model School recognition by CCEA (California Continuation Education Association).
