8330.01 - STUDENT DIRECTORY INFORMATION

The school corporation may release certain “directory information,” which means information contained in an education record of a student that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed.  Directory information shall not be provided to any organization for profit-making purposes.  The Superintendent or Superintendent’s designee may allow access to a school campus or students’ directory information to organizations that make students aware of educational or occupational options, to comply with law enforcement officials and/or to comply with Federal or State Law.

 

The Board designates as student directory information:  a student’s name; address; telephone number; date and place of birth, eye and hair color; gender; photograph; major field of study; participation in officially recognized activities and sports; height and weight, if a member of an athletic team; dates of attendance; date of graduation; awards received; the most recent education agency attendance by student; listing on honor roll; scholarships; videotape not used in disciplinary matter; general corporation news information, student work display at the discretion of the teacher if no grade is displayed.

 

 

A parent or eligible student who desires to object to disclosure of any or certain of the categories of directory information should request form (Denial of Permission to Release Certain Directory Information Without Prior Written Consent) from the superintendent’s office.  An objecting parent or eligible student may use this form to deny consent for release of all directory information, or the parent or eligible student may selectively deny consent by circling those categories of directory information the parent or eligible student does not wish released.

Building principals shall ensure that parents and eligible students are informed of their right to object to the release of directory information and that they have fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of receipt of the Annual Notice to Parents and Students of Their Rights Concerning Education Records in which to file an objection.
