ARKIVE Secure Records Management for Educational Institutions

Securing Your Most Important Administrative Records

ARKIVE Helps Educational Institutions With Secure Records Management

Small and large educational institutions benefit from having a reliable, secure records & information management partner by their side. Primary-elementary schools, secondary-high schools, and universities need proper information management in which traditional document management vendors aren’t up for the task. With ARKIVE’s focus on providing the most secure solutions on the information management market, you’ll be able to efficiently cut costs and stay compliant with the rules & regulations most applicable to your type of school.

Types of Regulations for Educational Institutions

There are several major regulations elementary, secondary, and post-secondary institutions are required to abide by. The last thing you need to worry about is the risk of non-compliance with established federal laws pertaining to records management. The burden of proof is on you to make sure you’re operating within proper compliance standards, and that’s where ARKIVE can help you make sure you’re on track.

We’ll help you maintain compliance with federal and state regulations which affect your records management processes, including:


Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Under this federal regulation, all schools which receive funding from the U.S. Department of Education must protect the privacy of student records. Parents of these students have the right to examine their child’s education records upon request, and when the student turns 18, they’ll gain the rights to review their student records as well.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

IDEA is a federal law that was passed in 1990 and mandates that schools accommodate the needs of students with disabilities. Schools can evaluate individuals who may have a disability without charging the parents anything. There are specific documents which need to be kept secure, like an IEP (Individualized Education Program), which illustrates which services a school must provide to a disabled student.

Fair Information Practice Principles

The Fair Information Practice Principles are the foundation in which United States privacy laws function. Individuals can have access to their education records and correct any inaccurate or outdated information at their discretion.
With our experience in the realm of secure information management, your school or university will be well equipped to withstand the challenges of maintaining proper compliance with information governance laws.
