Notice of Disclosure of Student Records
Important information regarding confidential student data
There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”
The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.
Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using the PDF links below:
Beginning the 2015–2016 school year, California public schools were required under AB 2706 to provide information to families about their health coverage opportunities and enrollment assistance. By providing families an opportunity to access health coverage information from schools, this legislation aims to reduce the number of eligible but uninsured children. Our goal is to support and increase the number of student and families who enroll in health coverage. Please contact your student’s Resource Center Teacher and/or Nurse for questions about starting the health care coverage application process.
