Series 5000 - Students

1.   Elementary and Secondary

D. Welfare

(2) Safety

(a)  Relations with Non-Custodial Parents

When parents of a student are separated, involved in divorce proceedings, or are divorced, the building principal will respect the rights of custodial and non-custodial parents equally except when a court order exists concerning special restrictions.  It is the responsibility of the custodial parent to provide the school principal with a copy of such a court order if restricted access to student or student information is requested.

Parents’ rights include access to student records and school mailings, attendance at parent/teacher conferences and Individual Education Program (IEP) meetings, and authority to request that a student be released early or be absent from school for a legitimate reason.

It is the responsibility of the non-custodial parent, or parents with shared custody, to inform the school office of his/her name, address, and phone number if they wish to be consulted regarding their child or wish to be placed on the school’s mailing list.
