Parents, and students 18 years or older, have the right to refuse to permit the designation of any or all of the categories of personally identifiable information with respect to that student as directory information. This includes addresses, birth date, birthplace, telephone number, dates of attendance, activities and sports participation, weight and height (if members of a sports team), awards received, and major fields of study. Parents, and students 18 years or older, who wish to exercise this right, shall notify the district in writing within ten (10) days of the publication of this notice. Such written notice shall be addressed to the school in which the named student is registered.
THIS IS WHAT GIVES THE RIGHT TO VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS (COLLEGE RECRUITERS, MILITARY RECRUITERS, ETC.) TO RECEIVE CONTACT INFORMATION ON A STUDENT.
