  1. No information either academic or personal shall be released from the student's record for the purpose of selecting a scholarship or prize winner without a release of infor- mation form signed by the student who is eighteen (18), or the parents of a student who is younger in accordance with the Board's policy on student records.

  2. The type of scholarship or prize, and any restrictions upon it, shall be approved by the Superintendent or designee.

  3. Any scholarship given to Marion Community Schools requires the approval of the Board or its designee.

All scholarships and prizes shall be awarded without regard to race, gender, color, religion, age, physical disability, ancestry or national origin, or other unlawful discriminatory classifications.
