Media Releases: September 12, 2003

This is to notify parents and guardians of students in the St. Johns County School District and adult students of the publication of annual directory information and of their right of refusal to have personally identifiable information released during the school year.

Persons wishing to exercise this right should respond in writing within ten days of this notice requesting that personal information with respect to the adult student or pupil under age 18 not be published. This would include the student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent educational agency or institution previously attended by the student.

The school district does not publish an annual directory; however, individual schools may publish school directories for student use.

All or part of the directory information will be released as honor roll lists, team rosters, scholarship recipients, etc. or may be released to military representatives. During the school year students also may participate in activities which are photographed, videotaped or electronically transmitted. Photos are often displayed on bulletin boards or used in school/community publications or web sites. Videos may be broadcast via closed circuit television or used for viewing at a meeting related to school activities. Students also often ask for duplicate copies to take home for their own collections.

If anyone has objections to his or her child appearing in a photo or video for public view, please notify, in writing, the child’s school or the St. Johns County School District in care of James Welu, Director of Student Services, 40 Orange Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084. If a written response is not received, it will be assumed that permission is granted.

Additional information may be obtained by calling 819-7597.
