FERPA Annual Notice with Student Directory Information and Opt-Out
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which is mailed annual with the school calendar, the district may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” in certain school publications without written consent unless you have advised the district in writing to the contrary. Directory information is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy. The district handbook, mailed annually along with the school calendar, informs families of their right to opt out, which may be completed online.
Education Law 2-d requires each educational agency to post Supplemental Information for each contract where a third-party contractor receives student data or teacher or principal data from CCSD.
