Annual Notice to Parents and Eligible Students on Student Records and Data Privacy

ANNUAL NOTICE TO PARENTS AND ELIGIBLE STUDENTS ON STUDENT RECORDS AND DATA PRIVACY
Pursuant to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act and State Statute 118.125(1)(d) and (2)(j), the School District of New Richmond has identified selected information relating to students called Directory Information. This information is to be considered public information and may be released by the school district.  Items considered to be Directory Information are as follows:
 
Student’s name
Photographs for school approved publications, co-curricular activities and athletics
Height and/or weight, if a member of an athletic team
Awards received
 
While the school district must obtain and use certain information about each student in order to plan the best program possible, this need must be balanced with the right of each student and parent to privacy.  Therefore, access to school information is limited and controlled.
If you do not want the School District of New Richmond to disclose directory information from your child’s education records without your prior written consent, you must notify the District in writing within fourteen (14) days of the publication of such notice in the Fall Edition District Newsletter, the official publication of the school district.
