PHOTOS & MEDIA ACCESS TO STUDENTS
Families may opt-out of having their students’ photograph or video recording used in district materials including newsletters, brochures, websites, social media and video or in other venues by completing the opt-out form with this handbook or at school offices. The opt-out form must be filed with the school principal each school year and remains valid through the end of the school year.
If you file an opt-out form, we will also request news media not interview your student or film/photograph your student. While our local news media typically honor such requests, our district does not have the legal authority to prevent your student from talking with media or dictating who media outlets film or photograph. You are encouraged to have a discussion with your student about your wishes should the media ask to interview them about controversial subjects. Students, families and visitors should be aware that public events such as athletic competitions or student performances may be filmed by news media or other parties.
