Disclosure of Student Marks

Section 32(2) of The Education Act Regulations, 1986 provides that:

“Immediately after final standings have been determined or changed, the principal shall submit to the department, in a form approved by the department, the marks of all pupils taking subjects in Grades 10, 11 and 12.”

There is, therefore, a legislated duty of the board of education (board) to ensure that all marks mentioned above are delivered and that the information is accurate. When disclosing the marks boards would be able to rely on section 28(2)(i) of LAFOIP which allow the sharing of personal information for the purpose of complying with an Act or regulation.
