Rights to Privacy

In accordance with state and federal laws and regulations students retain the right to confidentiality and privacy of their education and health records. Northern Valley provides the following safeguards to ensure privacy of all student records:

1. Student information is shared with individuals within the school with those who have a legitimate educational purpose. Those individuals include district and school administrators, guidance counselors, CST members, teachers, the school nurse, the school physician and relevant support staff. In addition members of law enforcement and the Division of Family Services as outlined in the district Memorandum of Agreement may have access to student records.

2. No information is shared with individuals outside of the school without prior written consent by the parent.
