Any policy or administrative regulation referring to “Parents” will apply to any person(s) who has the legal authority to make a decision for and in behalf of a student.
Parents of any student may access their child's student records, participate in school activities, visit the student at school and pick up the student after school. These rights shall be respected even if legal custody is vested in only one named parent, unless a court order restricts the right of the noncustodial parent. Parents may be asked to provide evidence of any completed or pending legal action which curtails the noncustodial parent's rights. School staff shall always abide by the most recent court order on the matter.
Upon request, the district shall provide noncustodial parents with school announcements and notices that are sent to the custodial parent.
Administrators, faculty, and staff are prohibited from participating in custody disputes unless subpoenaed to do so.
