Directory Information


Board of Education Policy JO (Student Records) identifies “Directory
Information” as information contained in an education record of a student
that generally would not be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if
disclosed. The Dexter school district designates the following items as
directory information for students in grades K-12, with two exceptions:

1. Student’s name

2. Parent’s name

3. Address (9-12th grade only)

4. Telephone number (9-12th grade only)

5. Date and place of birth

6. Grade level

7. Enrollment status

8. Participation in school-based activities and sports

9. Weight and height of members of athletic teams

10. Dates of attendance

11. Degrees, honors, and awards received

12. Artwork or coursework displayed by the district

13. Most recent previous school attended

14. Photographs, videotapes, digital images, and recorded sound

    unless such photographs, videotapes, digital images, and

    recorded sound would be considered harmful or an invasion of    

    privacy


Federal law allows school districts to disclose information from student
records if: 1) the information is not considered harmful or an invasion of
privacy; 2) the district has notified parents and eligible students that the
information will be released without parental consent unless the district
receives a written objection; and 3) the parent or eligible student has not
notified (in writing) the school that the information should not be released.

As a parent or eligible student, you have ten (10) school days after this
notice to provide notice in writing to the school district that you choose to
not have this information released. Unless notified to the contrary in
writing within the ten (10) school-day period, the school district may
disclose any of the those items designated as “Directory
Information” without the parent or eligible student’s prior written
consent including in print and electronic publications of the school.
