Federal and state laws allow the parents of a student who is under the age of 18, or a student who is 18 or over, to have access to the student's records. However, regulations of the state Department of Education allow public school students who are 14 years or older to have access to their own records. See 603 CMR 23.07 for information or call Department of Education.
