Annual Notice to Parents
Individual student records are confidential and are not released to colleges, employers, or elsewhere without written permission, subject to the following exceptions. District schools may forward educational records to other schools that have requested them and where a student seeks or intends to enroll. What the law refers to as directory information may be made public for school purposes unless a parent informs us in writing that they do not want this information made public. Directory information that we may make public includes a student’s name, grade level, honor or award received, photograph, age, membership in a school athletic team, activity or club, and (for athletes only) height and weight. Directory information is primarily made public so students’ accomplishments can be included in various publications such as a concert program, yearbook, or honor roll.
As required by federal law, the high school provides a list of senior class member names, addresses, and phone numbers to the military services—unless parents inform the high school principal in writing by September 15 that they do not want their child included in such lists.
Parents and 18-year-old students have the right to opt out of the disclosure of directory information by contacting their school principal. The annual opt form is linked here by building:
Per the Federal Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment, the district hereby notifies parents that our schools may occasionally conduct student surveys that touch on topics such as political affiliation, income, or beliefs or religious practices of the student. In such cases, a letter will be sent home explaining parents' rights to opt a child out of such a survey before it is conducted.
