The Hudson School District designates the following personally identifiable information contained in a student’s education record as “directory data”, and may disclose that information without prior written consent:
1. The student’s name
2. The student’s major field of study
3. The student’s participation in officially recognized activities and sports
4. The student’s weight and height if a member of an athletic team
5. The student’s dates of attendance
6. The student’s photograph
7. The student’s degrees and awards
8. The name of the school previously attended by the student.
At the beginning of each school year, the school district shall publish the above directory data list. For students enrolling after the notice is published, the list will be given to the student’s parent or the eligible student at the time and place of enrollment. In addition, information about directory data will be included in Parent-Student Handbooks.
After the parents or eligible students have been notified, they will have two weeks to advise the school district in writing (a letter to the district administrator’s office) of any or all of the items they refuse to permit the district to designate as directory information about that student.
At the end of the two-week period, each student’s records will be appropriately marked by the records custodians to indicate the items the district will designate as directory information about the student. This designation will remain in effect until it is modified by the written direction of the student’s parent or the eligible student.
Student addresses and telephone numbers may also be released, but only with the written consent of parents, guardians, or adult students. The building principal or central administrator, if applicable, will determine if the request is substantially and appropriately school-related. If deemed substantially and appropriately school-related, the building or District may facilitate the receipt of the necessary permissions.
In addition, the federal “No Child Left Behind Act of 2001” requires local school districts receiving federal assistance under the Act to provide, on request made by a military recruiter or an institution of higher education, access to secondary school students’ names, addresses and telephone listings. A secondary school student who is eighteen years or older or the parent of the student may request that the student’s name, address and telephone listing not be released to military recruiters or institutions of higher education without prior written consent. The request will remain in effect until the student’s graduation from High School unless revoked by the parent or student. Selective release of the student’s name, address and telephone number with written permission is also allowed.
