    Pursuant to applicable law, Independent School District No. 700 hereby gives
    notice to parents of secondary students and eligible secondary students of their
    rights regarding release of information to military recruiting officers. The school
    district must release the names, addresses, and home telephone numbers of
    secondary students to military recruiting officers within 60 days after the date of
    the request. Data released to military recruiting officers under this provision may
    be used only for the purpose of providing information to students about military
    service, state and federal veterans’ education benefits, and other career and
    educational opportunities provided by the military and cannot be further
    disseminated to any other person except personnel of the recruiting services of the
    armed forces.


    SHOULD THE PARENT OF A STUDENT OR THE ELIGIBLE STUDENT SO DESIRE,
    ANY OR ALL OF THE LISTED INFORMATION WILL NOT BE DISCLOSED TO
    MILITARY RECRUITING OFFICERS WITHOUT PRIOR CONSENT.
    IN ORDER TO REFUSE THE RELEASE OF THIS INFORMATION WITHOUT PRIOR
    CONSENT, THE PARENT OR ELIGIBLE STUDENT MUST MAKE A WRITTEN
    REQUEST TO THE RESPONSIBLE AUTHORITY [I.E. BUILDING PRINCIPAL] BY
    SEPTEMBER 1st OF EACH YEAR. THIS WRITTEN REQUEST MUST INCLUDE THE

    INFORMATION, WHICH ARE NOT TO BE RELEASED TO THE
    PUBLIC, INCLUDING MILITARY RECRUITERS.


    Notice: Refusal to release the above information to military recruiting officers alone does not
    affect the School District’s release of directory information to the public, including military
    recruiting officers. In order to make any directory information about a student private, the
    procedures contained in the Directory Information section of this notice also must be
    followed. If you do not want your child’s or eligible student’s directory information released
    to military recruiting officers, you also must notify the school district that you do not want this
    directory information released to any member of the public, including military recruiting
    officers.
