We contacted LeRoy Rooker with the same question.  He indicated that including photo in our directory information should cover the matter.  We included photographs (still photo, video, etc.) in HPU directory information list.  For specific group pictures, a signed release would probably in order but for candid photos, this should cover the matter.

How are other schools handling this with respect to FERPA?  It seems that social media is such an immediate forum there's no time to contact every person whose image might appear in a candid shot for permission or even to check out every person's permission to use images.

If you aren't the person who would know that information, would you pass on the question please?
