Obtaining parent testimonials for a program involves following specific protocols to ensure that parents are fully informed and comfortable with the process. This includes obtaining a media release form from parents, which grants permission for their testimonials to be shared publicly. Schools and programs must also adhere to applicable laws and regulations regarding the use of personal information, such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Additionally, it is important to communicate clearly with parents about the purpose of the testimonial, how it will be used, and any potential risks or benefits. This can help ensure that parents understand their rights and options and feel comfortable participating. Following these protocols can help schools and programs obtain valuable feedback and insights from parents while also protecting their privacy and rights.
