Notification of Rights under FERPA

In General

If you are a student or a parent of a student who uses Woot Math in school activities, we at Woot Math will gladly try to help you contact your school with respect to any student data we store. You can contact us here. Because Woot Math does not collect any personally identifiable information about students by policy, we have no way of directly identifying your personal records. We can only do so if your School or teacher identifies the records for us. This is true whether or not "FERPA" (described below) applies in your particular case. Depending on circumstances, FERPA may or may not provide you with specific rights as a parent or student, but Woot Math is here to both support you and your school, regardless.


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) may afford parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's "education records" as defined in the Act. In general, FERPA only applies to institutions that receive funds from the U.S. Department of Education.

The following notification of rights, which is being made with respect to Woot Math Student Data, is only applicable to usage in schools to which FERPA applies, and only in cases where the School determines that the Student Data it has stored with Woot Math (in any particular case) meets the FERPA definition of "Education Records."

In such cases, Woot Math will fully support the School with respect to the rights of parents and elligible students under FERPA. These rights are (quoting The Department of Education):

  1. The right to inspect and review the student's Education Records within 45 days after the day the School receives a request for access. Parents or eligible students should submit to School / appropriate school official a written request that identifies the records they wish to inspect. The school official will make arrangements for access [contacting Woot Math as needed] and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.
  2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s Education Records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.
  3. The right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's Education Records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
  4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the School to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA are:
