Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record.
However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions
(34 CFR § 99.31):
School officials with legitimate educational interest; (NAFD)
Other schools to which a student is transferring;
Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
