Directory Information

Each year the Superintendent shall provide public notice to students and their parents of the District's intent to make available, upon request, certain information known as "directory information." The Board designates as student "directory information":




a student's name;






telephone number;



date and place of birth;



major field of study;



participation in officially recognized activities and sports;



height and weight, if member of an athletic team;



height if member of an athletic team;



weight, if member of an athletic team which requires disclosure to participate;



dates of attendance;



date of graduation;



awards received;



honor rolls;






telephone numbers for inclusion in school or PTO directories;



school photographs or videos of students participating in school activities, events or programs.


The Board designates school-assigned e-mail accounts as "directory information" for the limited purpose of facilitating students’ registration for access to various online educational services, including mobile applications/apps that will be utilized by the student for educational purposes and for inclusion in internal e-mail address books. School-assigned e-mail accounts shall not be released as directory information beyond this/these limited purpose(s) and to any person or entity but the specific online educational service provider and internal users of the District's Education Technology.


The Superintendent will also develop a list of uses for which the District commonly would disclose a student’s directory information and develop an opt-out form that lists all of the uses or instances and allows a parent or legal guardian to elect not to have his or her child’s directory information disclosed for one (1) or more of these uses.


Each student’s parent or legal guardian will be provided with the opt-out form within the first thirty (30) days of the school year. The form shall also be provided to a parent or legal guardian at other times upon request.


If an opt-out form is signed and submitted to the District by a student’s parent or legal guardian, the District shall not include the student’s directory information in any of the uses that have been opted out of in the opt-out form. A student who is at least age eighteen (18) or is an emancipated minor may act on his or her own behalf with respect to the opt-out form.


Parents and eligible students may also refuse to allow the District to disclose any or all of such "directory information" upon written notification to the District within thirty (30) days after receipt of the District's public notice.
