Release of Student Directory Information
As a parent (or a student 18 or over), you have the right to prohibit the Release of Student Directory Information about your student.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that Rising Aviation High School, with certain exceptions, obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child's education records. However, Rising Aviation High School may disclose appropriately designated "directory information" without written consent unless you have advised Rising Aviation High School to the contrary in accordance with Rising Aviation High School procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow Rising Aviation High School to include information from your child's education records in certain school publications. Examples include:
A playbill, showing your student's role in a drama production;
The annual yearbook;
Honor roll or other recognition lists;
Graduation programs; and
Sports activity sheets, such as for basketball, showing weight and height of team members.
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. Outside organizations include, but are not limited to, education-related vendors, colleges, or military recruiters, companies that manufacture class rings or publish yearbooks who want contact information for Rising Aviation High School students.
