Is it OK for teachers who are providing letters of recommendation to see students’ GPAs, standard test scores, and/or transcripts without first obtaining a release?

Yes, FERPA §99.31(a)(1)(i)(A) specifically permits the disclosure of such information to “other school officials, including teachers,” within the school provided they “have legitimate educational interests.”

How did we do?

What's the difference between a FERPA Release and a FERPA Waiver?

Why is SCOIR’s release and waiver language different than The Common Application’s?
