We do share with the instructor of record (using automated reporting in TutorTrac), unless the student specifically requests that we not do so.

Our view of FERPA is that the course instructor is, by default, one of those persons identified by 99.31(a) of the Act: 

"An educational agency or institution may disclose personally identifiable information from an education record of a student without the consent required by 99.30 if the disclosure meets one or more of the following conditions:

"(1)(i)(A) The disclosure is to other school officials, including teachers, within the agency or institution whom the agency or institution has determined to have legitimate educational interests."

On the other hand, I actually was not aware that TutorTrac had an "opt-in" checkbox option. I may investigate this in the future.

The truth is, most instructors couldn't care less. They delete the email every week without a glance. Some do read the emails; a smaller number give extra credit for tutoring attendance. A very, very small minority find some way to punish students for making use of our services.

Subject: Sharing names of tutees with Faculty

Hello,

I apologize if this subject has come up often but I've had trouble finding what I'm looking for in the archives. I was wondering if those of you who coordinate tutoring/tutor centers provide the names of students who come for tutoring to their faculty members. If your center has a clear written policy either way, would you be able to share it with me?

We do not provide faculty with names but are happy to work with faculty and students when it comes to best supporting the student. However, we have had an increase in the number of faculty who are asking for the names and we are trying to get a sense of best practices and what might work best for everyone involved. For example, if you do share the names of students who come in for tutoring with their faculty, how are students made aware of that?

Thank you,
Megan
