Fairview Elementary School


Principal's Message

As the 2016 - 2017 school year draws to a close here are some resources to keep learning fun over the summer:

We are excited to share the wonders of learning new and challenging things with our friends and families.  It takes a village to raise a child and we are thrilled to be part of the process!

Make it a great year ... or not, the CHOICE is YOURS!

Mrs. Margaret S. Foster

BUCKLEY AMENDMENT Responsibilities of Educational Institutions - The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 - called the Buckley Amendment - provides for cutting off U.S. Office of Education (OE) funding to institutions that do not comply with the standards prescribed in the Act. The essence of those standards is that:   Parents of a child who is under age 18 and has never attended an educational institution beyond the high school level must be allowed to inspect the child’s school records. Students on reaching age 18 or attending an institution beyond the high school level, called eligible students in the regulations, must be allowed to review their own school or college records, and their parents may no longer do so.
