The purpose of this letter is to inform you about access to student information and allow you the opportunity to restrict that access if you so choose. Your children’s records are held in confidence by the administration of Children’s House. If you wish to access your child’s records, you need only contact the Administrator. The school district will comply with a request to inspect and review the educational records of your child within a reasonable time, but in all cases within 30 days.
Children’s House also compiles what they consider to be “directory information” which is made available to appropriate agencies upon their request. “Directory information” is defined as information in a student’s educational recorded which would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed, including but not limited to name, address, telephone number, date of birth, dates of attendance and awards received. “Directory information” may be released by the school district without written consent of parents to any party except for use in a profit-making plan or activity. Information other than that listed as “directory information” will not be released to any third party, excluding administrative use for legitimate educational purposes, without the written consent of the parent or guardian.
A parent has the right to restrict access to “directory information” on their child as well. If you wish to restrict the release of any of the information listed above according to our policy, please contact the Administrator for further information and explanation. If it is your desire to restrict “directory information”, please advise the Administrator by October, 15th. Thank you.
