What is FERPA?: “The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.” https://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html
We have a legal obligation to protect student information under FERPA. Below are some best practices guidelines:
- Return graded notebooks, projects and/or papers during class time or office hours. Do not leave them outside offices for student pick up.
- Student papers and tests should be delivered to and kept in a secured location (such as your office) until returned to the student. Do not leave them in your mailbox or ask students to deliver them to your mailbox. These mailboxes are open and are accessible to anyone, and the main office is not staffed every minute of the workday.
- Student work can be confidentially recycled after one term (ie: you may recycle work from winter 2018 at the end of spring 2018). Office staff can assist you with recycling large volumes of student work confidentially. Do not recycle student work in common/open recycling bins or office cleanout barrels. Additionally, transcripts, rosters and other papers with identifiable student information can be confidentially recycled as soon as you are finished with them.
- Discuss student performance (grades, GPA, progress, other assessment) out of hearing of others, including the student’s boyfriend/girlfriend, family, etc. Keep private grades and evaluative comments for tests, papers, projects, and anything else that identifies the student and do not post.

May 10, 1935 – August 18, 2016
Chulsoon Khang, our beloved father, and grandfather, 81, of Pocatello, Idaho, passed away on August 18, 2016.
Chulsoon was born in Kaesong City, Republic of Korea, on May 10, 1935. At the age of sixteen, Chulsoon bravely helped his entire family escape from the Korean War. He later immigrated to the United States of America in 1955. Chulsoon graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Economics in 1959. He continued on to receive an MA in Economics in 1962, from the University of Minnesota. He then earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota in 1965.
Chulsoon married Yee Yu Khang on September 15, 1959, and they were married for 57 beautiful years. Together they had two sons Kenneth Khang of Pocatello, Idaho, and Maurice Khang of Seattle, Washington.
Chulsoon was an associate professor of Economics at San Diego State University from 1963-1966. He then moved his family to Eugene, Oregon, where he taught Economics at the University of Oregon from 1967 to 1997. For 30 years, Chulsoon was a professor emeritus at the University of Oregon in Economics. Chulsoon also enjoyed being a Visiting Professor at the University of New South Wales, Australia in 1972-73. He was awarded a Fulbright which allowed him to teach in Hanguk University in Seoul, Korea in 1979. Chulsoon was well-published and contributed to many professional economics journals and publications. He was a well-respected Economics Professor by many students and colleagues worldwide. Chulsoon was an avid golfer, gardener, and fly-fisherman.
Chulsoon and Yee lived in Eugene, Oregon, for 30 years, and they retired to Port Ludlow, Washington in 1997. They built their dream retirement home near a golf course overlooking the Puget Sound. Eventually, they moved to Pocatello, Idaho, and lived with Kenneth and his family until their deaths. Chulsoon loved taking daily walks with his wife, Yee, and loved spending time with his grandchildren, Kameron Khang, Kalen Khang, and Emma Khang, all of Pocatello, Idaho.
Chulsoon is survived by his son, Kenneth Khang, his daughter-in-law, E’liane Khang, their three children; Kameron, Kalen, and Emma. He is also survived by his son, Maurice Khang and extended family.
Chulsoon is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Yee Yu Khang, who passed away six short months before him. Chulsoon’s wishes were to be cremated. His family will hold a private memorial in Seattle, Washington, to scatter he and his wife’s ashes into the Puget Sound. Chulsoon tenderly cared for his entire family and we will always cherish our wonderful memories of him.
