Notice Of Access To Your Student's Education Records


Notice is hereby given to parents of children under age 18, students 18 years of age or older, and married students attending the public schools of The Independent School District of Boise City that, pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 USC 1232g), you have the right to inspect and review your child’s school records (or your records if you are 18 years of age or married) and the opportunity to seek amendment of the record if you believe it is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of the student’s privacy. Parents, or students over the age of 18 or married, may request, in writing, access to such records. School records are those records maintained by the District that relate directly to the individual student.

You are further notified that school records containing personally identifiable information from school records of the student will be released only to school officials such as teachers who have a legitimate educational interest directly pertaining to an individual student’s education, or pursuant to the parent’s or eligible student’s written consent. Your written consent must specify the record to be released, the reason for release, and to whom copies are to be provided. Release is permitted when required by judicial order or lawful subpoena, provided that the District makes a reasonable effort to notify the parent or eligible student of the order or subpoena in advance of compliance. Any person, agency, or organization legally entitled to student records and desiring access to such records must sign a written form that will be kept in the student’s file for inspection by the parent of the student, or the student who is age 18 or married. Personal information shall only be transferred to a third party on the condition the party will not permit any other party to have access to the information without the written consent of the parent or eligible student. Education records may be forwarded to other schools that have requested the records and in which the student seeks or intends to enroll.

A parent or eligible student may file a written complaint regarding an alleged violation under the Act with the Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue S.W., Washington, DC 20202-4605. Federal regulations promulgated pursuant to the Act (34 CFR Part 300) may be found at the Idaho Supreme Court Law Library at 451 West State
Street, Boise, Idaho. The Independent School District of Boise City has adopted a policy pertaining to the rights mentioned above and it is available for inspection at the District Services Center at 8169 West Victory Road, Boise, Idaho 83709, or at the following website: Policy 3600 Student Records and Release of Student Directory Information
