The Board of Education of Marshall County Central Schools has adopted the Data Management Policy governing public use of school records. Copies of the policy are available for parent and eligible student review in the offices of the high school principal and the superintendent of schools. Personally Identifiable Data is data which the schools may disclose without the consent of parents. Directory Information includes data which may be disclosed after public notice is given and no objections are received. Private Records and Confidential Records are the other two types of records, and these have strict regulations regarding their accessibility and disclosure. In accordance with the policy and pursuant to the U.S. General Education Provisions Act and Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, the Marshall County Central Schools, ISD # 441, proposes to designate the following personally identifiable information contained in a student's education record as "directory information", which may be disclosed without prior written consent: 1. The student's name 2. The name(s) of the student's parent(s) 3. The student's address 4. The sex of the student 5. The student's grade level completed 6. The student's extracurricular participation 7. The student's achievement of awards and honors 8. The student's height and weight if a member of an athletic team A parent or guardian or an eligible student (student who is 18 years of age or older or a student attending a post-secondary school) who objects to the designation of any or all of the above information as directory information must notify the high school administrator or superintendent of schools in writing by September 30. Denial of Release of Directory and Yearbook Information by Parents forms are available in the high school office and in the office of the superintendent of schools. On or after September 30, each student's record will be marked by the custodian of records to indicate the items the district will designate as directory information about the student. This designation will remain in effect until it is modified by the written direction of the student's parent or the eligible student.
