EDUCATION CODE
SECTION 49060



49060.  It is the intent of the Legislature to resolve potential
conflicts between California law and the provisions of Public Law
93-380 regarding parental access to, and the confidentiality of,
pupil records in order to insure the continuance of federal education
funds to public educational institutions within the state, and to
revise generally and update the law relating to such records.
   This chapter applies to public agencies that provide educationally
related services to pupils with disabilities pursuant to Chapter
26.5 (commencing with Section 7570) of Division 7 of Title 1 of the
Government Code and to public agencies that educate pupils with
disabilities in state hospitals or developmental centers and in youth
and adult facilities.
   This chapter shall have no effect regarding public community
colleges, other public or private institutions of higher education,
other governmental or private agencies which receive federal
education funds unless described herein, or, except for Sections
49068 and 49069 and subdivision (b)(5) of Section 49076, private
schools.
   The provisions of this chapter shall prevail over the provisions
of Section 12400 of this code and Chapter 3.5 (commencing with
Section 6250) of Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code to the
extent that they may pertain to access to pupil records.
