World Learner School complies with federal and state laws governing the release of student record information. These laws require the school to release ‘directory information’. Directory information includes the student’s name, address, telephone listing, photograph, student’s date of birth, gender, dates and schools of enrollment, grade level, school special honors and achievement, participation is officially recognized activities, and photos or videotapes of a student engaged in academic, non-academic or co-curricular activities. Directory information does not include individual grades, testing results, race, religion, or other personal facts.
Should a parent choose to classify their child’s directory information as private, their child’s directory information will be excluded from official school publications and electronic media including to but not limited to the yearbook, student newspaper, graduation programs, recognition lists, and performance programs.
By law, directory information must be made available to organizations or individuals who request it. PTO groups, Scouts, and photographers (Lifetouch) are examples of organizations who may request student directory data.
Parents may request that directory information be classified as private by completing the Privacy Form (available from The Office).
Education Records Protected by FERPA
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act requires that every student have the right for information other than directory information to be kept private. Information on Incident or Accident Reports may not disclose identifying information about any student other than the child who is the subject of the report. World Learner School staff are prohibited from disclosing any identifying information to any individual, neither in writing or verbally.
