Q. Students; discussions on individual students.

Personally identifiable student records maintained by public schools are excluded from the definition of public record and therefore not open to the general public. If a student is younger than 18 years old, such records are open for inspection only to that student's parents, guardian or other custodian. Mo.Rev.Stat. §  610.021(6). If a student is 18 years or older, such records are also open for inspection to that student. Id. Federal law provides similar rights and imposes similar restrictions.
