Policy 1A.13 Public & Private Information: Record Maintenance and Retention

Anoka-Ramsey Community College will establish a procedure for the maintenance and retention of private data and public information (records). The procedure will be in accordance with federal regulations, Minnesota statutes, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MGDPA). The procedure will include:

  • Identification of the position responsible for information oversight

 The college will identify student and employee data privacy coordinators. Both coordinators will serve as the college’s reporting liaisons to the State of Minnesota and the Minnesota State system and provide oversight for the college’s records retention schedule.
