Student Directory Information Policy

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that the MSDWT, with certain exceptions, obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s education records. MSDWT may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the district to the contrary in accordance with district procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the District to include this type of information from your child’s education records in certain school publications (e.g., honor roll listing and sports rosters/programs). This type of information may include a student’s name, weight, height, grade level, and grade point average.

Directory information, which is information that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if released, can also be disclosed to outside organizations without a parent’s prior written consent. Two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEAs ) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory information categories – names, address and telephone listings – unless parents have advised the LEAs that they do not want their student’s information disclosed without their prior written consent.

If you do not want this type of information concerning your child published, please notify, in writing, the office of your child’s school.
