Release of Student Information (Opt-Out)

  • Some student information, including images of your child, can be shared without your consent. If you are concerned about protecting the privacy of your Rochester City School District student, please read below carefully. You must complete a new form for the 2018-2019 school year.
    U.S. military recruiters, colleges, and outside agencies that work with our schools may request directory information on students. Information that the District may share with these groups include the student’s name, address, phone number, date and place of birth; major field of study; height and weight of members of athletic teams; dates of attendance; degrees and awards received; photographs; and the name of the previous school the student attended.
    The law allows parents or guardians, or high school students over 18, to say no to disclosing this information.  If you do not want information shared with any or all of the organizations listed on the form, please check the age- appropriate boxes, sign, and return the form below. Each section of the form is labeled with the appropriate grade level.
    How to Opt-Out
    You must check “no” in the appropriate box and return a signed form to the main office of your child’s school no later than September 14, 2018, if you do not want information disclosed. If no documentation is on file, we will assume that you are granting permission to release directory information and/or photo or video images.
