Permission to Withhold Student Directory Information: Due October 15

Annually, the District provides an opportunity for families to opt out of releasing their student’s directory information. Historically, this has been a paper form that families return to their school’s main office. This year, we’ve transitioned the form online!

  • Families can choose to complete the form entirely online, print the form or complete it via a fillable PDF and email a copy back to their school’s office, or request a paper copy to complete.
  • In all of these cases, you are not required to send or take a paper form back to your student's school during this pandemic.
  • Should you decide to complete the form, selecting one of the "opt-out" options for your student's information, we encourage you to follow up with your school's office to confirm your form was received. Forms must be submitted by October 15.
  • Forms will be accepted after the deadline, but the District cannot be responsible for the release of Directory Information if the Permission to Withhold Student Directory Information form is received after the October 15 deadline of the current school year.
