Student Directory Information and Student Recruitment
Stillwater Public Schools has created a limited directory information policy and will limit access only to those parties and purposes as described in board policy CHE, Student Services Vendors. The school district has designated the following information as “directory information,” and it will disclose that information without prior written consent:
The student’s name;
The address of students in tenth grade or above;
The student’s grade level (i.e., first grade, tenth grade, etc.);
The student’s participation in officially recognized activities and sports;
The student’s degrees, honor and awards received;
The student’s weight and height, if a member of an athletic team;
The student’s photograph.
Each school year, the district will give notice as required by law the above list or a revised list of the items of directory information it proposes to designate as directory information. For students enrolling after the notice is published, the list will be given to the student’s parent or the eligible student at the time and place of enrollment.
After the parents or eligible students have been notified, they will have two weeks to advise the school district in writing to refuse to permit the school district to designate the items listed as directory information about that student.
At the end of the two-week period, each student’s records will be appropriately marked by the records custodian to indicate the disclosure or non-disclosure of the information about that student. This designation will remain in effect until it is modified by the written direction of the student’s parent or the eligible student.
Military services representatives shall have access to student directory information unless such access is specifically denied in writing by the parent, legal guardian, or student age 18 or over. Military services representatives shall have the same access to secondary school students as is provided to postsecondary institutions or prospective employers.
