(Refer to Board Policy JR)
In situations where the parents of a student are divorced or separated, each parent, custodial and/or non-custodial, shall have equal rights to their child’s records unless a court order specifies otherwise. Such documentation may be in the form of a restraining order, results of a custody hearing, or other legal documents. Parents are also responsible for keeping the principal informed of all legal changes regarding child custody and visitation issues. Principals can only enforce denial of a parent’s access to their child or their child’s school records when legal documentation authorizing such is provided to the school. Private agreements between the student’s parents shall not be recognized by the district’s personnel.
