Under the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, public high schools must give the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of students to military recruiters, college/university recruiters, and prospective employers if the recruiters request the information (P.L. 107-110, Section 9528; 10USC 503). However, students or their parents have the right to instruct the school in writing that this information is not to be released.
To comply with this Federal Act, we have created a form in Genesis, which is open for you to answer during the week. To access the form, please log into the Genesis Parent Portal and click on the "Forms" link at the top of the page. Find the "Student Information Release" form and click on it to fill out the form, which contains three questions.
If you do not consent to the release of this information to 1) military recruiters, 2) college/university recruiters, and/or 3) prospective employers, please check the appropriate box or boxes on the Student Information Release Form. To be certain your wishes are respected, please complete this form by October 28, 2016.
