The ADA is one of America's most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.

HOW LONG DOES IT GENERALLY TAKE TO ACCESS MY EDUCATION RECORDS?
Under FERPA, the school is required to make education records ready for review by the parent or eligible student within 45 days of a request. If you are a student who receives special education services under the IDEA, a school also must comply with a request to view your education records without unnecessary delay and before certain events required by the IDEA such as any meeting regarding an individualized education program (IEP) or any due process hearing or resolution session
CAN ANYONE OTHER THAN ME OR MY PARENT VIEW MY EDUCATION RECORDS?
Yes. Under FERPA, a school or school district may disclose information from your education records without your consent to specific entities, such as a State education office, or for specific purposes, such as to comply with a court order.
WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MY RIGHTS RELATED TO MY EDUCATION RECORDS UNDER THE STATE LAW AND LOCAL POLICY?
If you would like more information about requirements under the IDEA, state laws, or local policies, you should contact your school district.
