Directory Information includes a student's name, address, phone number, school issued student email address, date and place of birth, major course of study, participation in school activities or sports, weight and height if a member of an athletic team, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, most recent school attended, class schedule, photograph, and class roster. A third party may include, but is not limited to a branch of the military, colleges, universities, business associations, parent/teacher organizations and individual citizens. The release of this information is subject to a parent's request that the information not be disclosed. If a parent or guardian wishes to prevent his or her child's directory information from being released to the military and other third parties, he/she should send a letter by September 30, 2021 to Edward Escobar, Director of Pupil Personnel Services in the Administration Building on the Fox Lane Campus indicating that the directory information is not to be disclosed. Please be sure to include the child's full name and address. This process must to be done annually. Unless allowed by law, the school district will not disclose personally identifiable student information.
