  • Teachers and Administrators of schools that are utilizing an IAS educational program, such as Acellus, for the benefit of their students;
  • Other appropriately authorized individuals, including (but not limited to):
    • A registered “Parent” or “Advisor” of a student enrolled in Acellus; and
    • State or federal employees in response to a lawfully issued subpoena for a student’s information.
