Student directory information designed to be used internally to assist certified personnel is not accessible to the public. Student pictures on the web, student work on the web, student directory and general student information will be provided to the public for school related activities and/or educational opportunities without parents’/guardians’ consent unless the parents/guardians have notified the administration within the deadline set in the annual notice that they do not want their minor student’s information published without their consent. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18.

Directory information shall be defined in the annual notice. The notice is included in student handbooks. It may include, but not be limited to, the student’s name, photograph or likeness, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, and other similar information.
