Schools provide directory information for public listings such as honor roll, awards, and other notices in the newspaper or on the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) website. A student’s name, address, and telephone number may also be released to Parent Teacher Associations (PTA). Unless you tell them not to, schools can release the information without your prior consent.

Directory Information includes the following items: student’s and/or parent’s name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number; student’s date and place of birth; major field of study; participation in officially recognized activities and sports; degrees and awards received (including honor roll); most recent school attended; dates of attendance; photograph, or other likeness; the weight and height of members of athletic teams; and other similar information.

If you do not want your school to release your directory information, complete the information below and return this notice to your school by September 13, 2019. This form must be completed every year.  Translated copies of this form are available in Spanish, French, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, and Amharic below.  

Your school will assume you agree to the release of the directory information, unless this form is returned by Friday, September 13, 2019.

If you need to change your decision at a later date, just contact your school directly.

If you enroll after September 13, 2019, you can complete this form at the time of enrollment.
