[nagdu] Question abound trave with a University

If I were in your position, I would ask them if they, in general, try
to abide by FERPA: The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act.
Unless the person you are talking to is completely insane, they will
give you an emphatic "Yes!"  At that point, I would refer them to this
letter from the U.S. Department of Education, in which the Department
confirms that FERPA does in fact cover the records that a school has
regarding a persons disability.


I would then ask them if they have received permission from you to
share any information with Greyhound.  Finally, just to be certain, I
might reiterate that you are expressly forbidding them doing so, and
that you will consider it a violation under FERPA if they do.

Of course, that's what I might do.  someone else might choose to be
more tactful about it, but given the level of annoyance I felt just
reading about this, I probably would not.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
