The SeaTIR steering committee worked with the Board Policy Committee during the 2006-07 school year to get the District to rework the wording of its regulations and form for withholding permission for release of "directory information" to military recruiters as required by the No Child Left Behind Act to be sure parents and students understand that they can "opt-out" from the lists sent to military recruiters without worrying that they would not hear from colleges or the companies marketing school rings, etc.
The District now provides a specific form for use by students themselves, as provided in the NCLB, and also the regulations specify that the request can be made in any form, including a handwritten note signed by the student. While other requests relating to release of student records can only be the parent or qualified student over 18 years, in the case of withholding that information from military recruiters can be made by any secondary school student.
The District and high school websites should provide a link to the necessary form. If you do not see it there, you may want to call the District Office to ask that it be added. You should be aware that the District has a very short time to the deadline when these forms need to be received. DON'T WAIT! GET YOUR FORM 8330F IN RIGHT AWAY.
