Posting Grades By Last Four Digits Of Social Security Number

"A student's social security number is, by definition, "personally identifiable information" under FERPA, and may not be disclosed without consent in any form. [...] While there are certain exceptions to this general prohibition, none permit an educational agency or institution to publicly disclose personally identifiable information, including the student's grades and portions of the student's social security number, from the education records of students."
