The purpose of this procedure is to describe the circumstances under which access may be granted, including a student's request to view his/her own records. All records and information related to students with disabilities are confidential and maintained in the Center for Accessible Resources.

Narrative

Confidentiality

All records and information related to students with disabilities are confidential and maintained in the Center for Accessible Resources (CAR). With the student's permission, pertinent information can be discussed with Lane staff and faculty who are involved in the student's educational program or others specifically identified by the student on the Center for Accessible Resources Consent form. Records can be released to another institution only upon written permission of the student.

Access to Records

Students may review their own records within 45 days after their request is received, according to the procedure described in Release of Student Records. To accomplish this, students wishing to review their CAR records can contact the Center for Accessible Resources (541) 463-5150 voice, 711 TTY, or AccessibleResources@lanecc.edu and arrange an appointment with the Center for Accessible Resources Project Coordinator or designee.
