including grades, attendance records, health, special programs, and 
behavior information are stored in paper form in locked file cabinets. 
Electronic records are stored on hard disks.

RETRIEVABILITY:
    Records including attendance, grades, discipline information, test 
and assessment histories, program enrollments, and health information 
are retrieved from the NASIS using a unique student identification code 
assigned by the system. Other records for school administrators, 
principals, teachers, teacher aides, counselors, school bus drivers, 
line officers, regional directors, system administrators, librarians, 
food service workers, dormitory managers, and parents/guardian records 
are retrievable using a unique identifier code assigned by the system 
for each individual.

SAFEGUARDS:
    NASIS is maintained with controls meeting safeguard requirements 
identified in Departmental Privacy Act Regulations (43 CFR 2.51) for 
manual and automated records. Access to records is limited to 
authorized personnel whose official duties require such access; agency 
officials have access only to records pertaining to their agencies.
    (1) Physical Security: Paper records are maintained in locked file 
cabinets and/or in secured rooms.
    (2) Technical Security: Electronic records are maintained in 
conformity with Office of Management and Budget and Departmental 
guidelines reflecting the implementation of the Federal Information 
Security Management Act. Electronic data are protected through user 
identification, passwords, database permissions, and software controls. 
These security measures establish different degrees of access for 
different types of users. An audit trail is maintained and reviewed 
periodically to identify unauthorized access. A Privacy Impact 
Assessment was completed for the NASIS and is updated at least annually 
to ensure that Privacy Act requirements and personally identifiable 
information safeguard requirements are met. Security procedures are 
verified through annual assessments of the applications. The NASIS 
Security Assessment was last performed 12/19/2006 in accordance with 
FIPS 200 and NIST 800-53.
    (3) Administrative Security: All DOI and contractor employees with 
access to NASIS are required to complete Privacy Act, Records 
Management Act, and Security Awareness Training.
