As part of the School District's annual notification under FERPA, it designates for this school year the following types or categories of information as "directory information." Directory information means information contained in the educational records of a student, which is not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed, so that it may be disclosed without prior paternal consent.
The School District's list of directory information includes: the student's name, address, telephone listing, electronic mail address, photograph, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, grade level, enrollment status, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, degrees, honors and awards received and the most recent education agency or institution attended. Examples of how the School District may disclose directory information include releasing to the newspaper, or other news sources, information about students who have been named to the honor roll, National Honor Society, or as valedictorian or who participated in any student clubs, activities or sports. These examples are for illustration only and are not an exclusive list of the manner in which directory information may be disclosed.
This notice provides you as a parent or eligible student with an opportunity to object in writing to any or all of those types of information that the school district has designated as directory information. You have the right to refuse to permit release by notifying the school district in writing that you do not want any or all of those types of information to be designated as directory information for your child or yourself.
Please submit any refusal with the types of information you wish removed from the list of directory information and mail your objections on or before, October 1 to your school's principal. If no written refusal is received, the school district may disclose directory information without your prior consent.
It should also be noted that upon request the district discloses educational records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks to enroll.
