Special Education Objection Letter on the Disclosure of Student Information and Records

A recent judge's ruling has made it necessary for the District to provide confidential information about our Special Education students as far back as 2008 to a non-profit organization. Parents wishing to object to the District's providing this information may complete the attached letter and return it to your child's principal or the District Superintendent, Dr. McNeil. These letters will be forwarded to the Judge involved in this case.
