Lisa:  I live in Michigan, and want to get copies of a couple of tests that my son has taken in one of is elective classes (Health class). He is a special ed. student. My son’s teacher is stating that I can come in to view the tests, but I cannot have copies of the tests since they are “district tests”. Is this true, or does a law (such as FERPA) allow me to obtain actual copies of the tests from the school?

I think that FERPA allows for copies if you can show that you need them to participate in the IEP process. But if they are refusing to allow you to make a copy based on copyright law, then they are in disagreement with court rulings (jn CA I think) so the ultimate answer may depend on where you live. If it were me, I’d photograph the tests with my cell phone when I was allowed to view them.
