The school district must maintain extensive student information in order to provide appropriate educational services to students. The district must employ safeguards to insure that confidentially of this information is maintained and that information is available, where and when appropriate, to parents or guardians, appropriate school personnel, students, and state and federal agencies as required by law.

The superintendent will ensure that parents are informed of the rights that they have to access student information.

The superintendent will ensure that student records are maintained or destroyed in compliance with state and federal laws, that regulations are developed that are in accord with law and regulations, and that all principals are familiar with the regulations. The superintendent will make certain that school principals allow only authorized personnel to have access to all or part of the student’s records and that all district procedures are followed.
