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 organizations of any combination of parents, teachers, and students of a school. 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 of birth; major field of study; grade level; 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 11, 2020.
Additional copies of this notice can be found on the MCPS website, and are available in Spanish, French, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean and Amharic. This form must be completed every year.
Your school will assume you agree to the release of the directory information, unless this form is returned by Friday, September 11, 2020. If you need to change your decision at a later date, just contact your school directly.
If you enroll after September 11, 2020, you can complete this form at the time of enrollment.
