Disclosure of Student Information
If you do not want your child’s directory data released to the military, you must notify the school in writing. If you do not want your child to be photographed, you must also indicate in writing your request. Send your request to the school principal.
See information below.
DISCLOSURE OF DIRECTORY DATA
The district may release, individually or as part of a directory, yearbook or sports program, directory data for students. Directory data includes: the pupil’s name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, photographs, awards received and name of the school most recently attended.
An adult pupil or the parent or guardian of a minor pupil may request that the directory data not be released without prior consent. To ensure that directory data remains confidential, the school principal must be notified in writing. Such notification should include the student’s name, age, address, school and grade level, as well as the parent’s or guardian’s name, address and phone. Such notification must be given annually. Exclusion from the school directory is not the same as requesting that directory data remain confidential.
Adult students or the parents or guardians of minor pupils who transfer into the school district have 14 days from the time of actual enrollment to submit the above notification.
RECRUITER ACCESS TO STUDENT RECORDS
In accordance with the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, school districts are required to provide military recruiters and institutions of higher education with students’ names, addresses and telephone numbers unless the student or a parent has requested in writing that such information not be disclosed without written consent, per the above regarding directory data.
The Wauwatosa School District does not discriminate on the basis of a person's color, sex, race, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability.
