We respond only to direct inquiries from students. We discourage third parties (parents, spouses, and friends) from involving themselves because this can slow student growth and progress. We do this because we are committed to student self-advocacy and independence. We also do it because federal law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) mandates that we protect the privacy of student education records, and BC policy mandates that we keep academic performance as a matter between the institution and the student. Requests by students to include third parties in any instructor-student discussion of academic performance will be considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the instructor.
