Student Directory Information Policy

  • New York state law allows school districts to release student directory information to an outside group without individual consent. Parents or eligible students have the right to refuse the release of such information by notifying Ms. Beth Ann Blynt, Records Information Officer, in writing no later than October 1 of the school year. Following this response period, the District may release such information.
    The Family Education and Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) defines student directory information as the following: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height (if members of athletic teams), degrees and awards received and the name of the educational agency or institution previously attended by the student.
