1168 LG School Dist. #196

INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT 196 Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Public Schools Educating our students to reach their full potential Series Number 505.3.1P Adopted June 1980 Revised July 2012 Title Public Notice Annual Notification of Rights, Protection and Privacy of Student Records 1. Intent 1.1 Pursuant to the requirements of Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records, and the requirements of federal law (34 C.F.R. Section 99.7), the following constitutes the district's annual notification to parents, guardians and students regarding data privacy practices of the district. 1.2 Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records, incorporates state and federal requirements on data privacy rights in student educational records, as summarized below. 2. Privacy Rights 2.1 Educational records which identify or could be used to identify a student, other than directory information, may not be released to members of the public without the written permission of the student's parent or guardian, or the student if the student is 18 years of age or older or attends a post-secondary institution or as otherwise permitted by law. This general rule is subject to specific and limited exceptions which are described in Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records. 2.2 One exception, which permits disclosure of educational records without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the school as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff; a person serving on the School Board; a person or company with whom the school has contracted to provide a service instead of using its own employees or officials or an authorized volunteer. Legitimate educational interests include those directly related to the school official's professional responsibilities for classroom instruction, teaching, assessment and research, student achievement and progress, student discipline and student health or welfare or other legitimate professional responsibilities. 3. Directory Information 3.1 "Directory information" includes a student's name, date and place of birth, sex, major field of study, participation and performance in officially recognized school activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, grade levels completed, degrees, honors and awards received, honor roll, school of attendance, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended, photographs, videotapes and other visual representations for school-approved, publications, newspapers, public presentations, and publication on school-approved Internet and World Wide Web pages. Directory information does not include identifying data which references religion, race, color, disability, social position or nationality. "Directory information" also includes address and home telephone numbers of students in grades 9 through 12, only for the purpose of providing such information to military recruiting officials as requested by the military, and to institutions of higher learning as requested by the institutions, in accordance with state and federal law. 3.2 In accordance with the Minnesota Data Practices Act, 20 U.S.C. Section 1232g and Public Law 107-110 (No Child Left Behind Act of 2001), the district must release to military recruiting officers and institutions of higher learning the names, addresses and home telephone numbers of students in 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades within 60 days after the date of the request, unless parents or students refuse to release the information. Therefore, students' addresses and students' home telephone numbers are gathered only for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students, only for the purpose of providing the information to military recruiting officers and institutions of higher learning. 3.3 Directory information may be released to the public without prior parent, guardian or student consent unless the parent or student (if the student is 18 or older) has objected in writing to the release of one or more category of such information. 3.4 Parent(s), guardian(s), or students age 18 or older may object to the release of directory information by obtaining Procedure 505.2.4.3P, Denial of Release of Directory and Yearbook Information. The form should be completed and returned to your student's school. 3.5 If filed, the denial of release of information will remain in effect until such time as it is modified or rescinded by the parent or eligible student. 4. Inspection of Records The parent(s), guardian(s), or a student who is 18 or older, may request to inspect and review any of the student's educational records except those which are, by state or federal law, made confidential. 4.1 The district will comply with the request immediately, if possible, and, if not, within 10 days exclusive of weekends and holidays. 4.2 Copies of records may be obtained upon written request. A copying and handling fee will be charged. 5. Challenge to Accuracy of Records A parent, guardian, or student 18 or older who believes that specific information in the student's educational records is inaccurate, misleading, incomplete or violates the privacy or other rights of the student, may request that the district amend the record in question. Challenges may be made by requesting and filing Procedure 505.2.11P, Request to Amend Educational Records, with the director of special education at Independent School District 196, 3455 153rd Street West, Rosemount, Minnesota 55068-4946. 5.1 If the director of special education declines to amend the record as requested within 30 days, the parent, guardian, or student who is 18 or older, will be advised in writing of their right to request and obtain a hearing. 5.2 If either the director of special education or, after hearing, the hearing officer appointed by the school district, determines that the record in question is inaccurate, misleading, incomplete or violates the privacy or other rights of the student, the record will be amended, the parent, guardian, or student age 18 or older will be notified of the change, and an attempt will be made to notify past recipients of the data. 5.3 If, as a result of the hearing, it is determined that the challenged record is not inaccurate, misleading, incomplete or in violation of the privacy or other rights of the student, the parent, guardian, or student age 18 or older, will be notified of their rights to place a statement with the record commenting upon it and setting out any reason for disagreeing with the decision of the district. 5.4 The decision of the director of special education as responsible authority or the hearing officer may, with regard only to questions of accuracy and completeness of records, be appealed in accordance with the applicable provisions of the State Administrative Procedures Act, Minnesota Statute Chapter 14, relating to contested cases. 5.5 To the extent that a record is alleged to be misleading or to violate the privacy or other rights of a student, in violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. Section 1232[g] and 34 C.F.R. Part 99), neither state nor federal law provides for an appeal. 6. Subjects of Special Education Records: Requesting Destruction After Graduation or Upon Reaching Age 21 District 196 complies with 34 C.F.R. Chapter III Section 300.624. At the time of graduation or at the attainment of age 21, special education records are no longer needed to provide educational services to the child. 6.1 Requests for destruction of special education records can be made by: 6.1.1 The graduated student, age 18 or older, or 6.1.2 The non-graduated student age 21 or older, or 6.1.3 The parent or guardian of a 17-year old or younger graduated student, or 6.1.4 A person assigned guardianship of a former student with a disability who is no longer eligible for special education services. 6.2 Special education records are defined as any records stored in the district's child study files that include a referral form and the subsequent steps of evaluation and/or assessment, including: raw data, any record of staffing and/or team meeting, and IEP periodic review and annual review. 6.2.1 Special education data includes but is not limited to the child study forms labeled CS1 through CS99 and any supporting data, as well as due process forms DP1 through DP12 and any supporting data, and any analogous forms used in the district prior to the development of the forms now in use. 6.2.2 Special education records include records on students referred for special education service and denied assessment; referred for special education service, assessed and denied service; and/or assessed and granted service. 6.2.3 There may be instances in which the director of special education may need to determine if records are special education records. 6.3 A former District 196 student (or the parent or guardian of such a student) who is the subject of special education data may request destruction of special education records by calling 651-423-7628 or writing to the director of special education at Independent School District 196, 3455 153rd Street West, Rosemount, Minnesota, 55068-4946. 6.4 Former students who are in doubt as to whether they are subjects of special education data or want more information regarding destruction of data may call 651- 423-7628 for a determination. If records exist, the former student may request destruction of the data by writing to the director of special education at Independent School District 196, 3455 153rd Street West, Rosemount, Minnesota, 55068-4946. 7. Transfer of Records to Other Schools District 196 forwards educational records, including disciplinary records, of students to other schools and school districts in which a student seeks or intends to enroll upon request of that school or school district. A parent, guardian, or student who is 18 years of age may request and receive a copy of the records which are transferred and may, pursuant to this policy, challenge the accuracy of the records. The district does not, however, notify parent(s), guardian(s), or students of age 18 or older prior to such transfer. 8. Types and Purposes of Data Gathering: Right to Refuse or Not Refuse 8.1 Educational programs administered by the district involve the submission by students of assignments, reports and, periodically, the taking of tests. The district may also collect information for purposes of student enrollment, the administration of various school programs and for purposes of student health and safety. 8.1.1 Information required to be submitted by students in connection with such reports, assignments and tests is private data under the terms of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, Minnesota Statute 13.01 13.99. Such information is gathered and used as part of the educational process, in part to determine what the student is learning and what the student needs to learn. The district may also gather information from students when necessary to maintain the order and discipline of the school. In some cases this may include private data. 8.1.2 There is no legal requirement that the students submit such data, but their failure to do so will, of course, have a direct result upon grades which are measured by evaluating such information. In some cases, students may be required to share data when it is necessary to maintain order and discipline. Failure to provide data in such cases may lead to disciplinary action. 8.1.3 School officials within the school district may receive and use the collected data when they have a legitimate educational interest in evaluating the student's progress or maintaining the order and discipline of the school. Such information is treated as private information under the terms of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and is not to be disclosed to third parties, unless authorized by law, consistent with the terms of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C.1232[g] and 34 C.F.R. Part 99), without the permission of the parent(s) or guardian(s) of minor students or students age 18 or older. 8.1.4 School officials may also use student data for research, including student data that is collected or assembled for purposes of student assessments. The research may be for developing, validating or administering predictive tests; to administer student aid programs, or to improve instruction. Student data collected or assembled for student assessments may be used in research that includes, but is not limited to norming studies, longitudinal or alignment studies and growth research. Parents, guardians and adult students may contact the district with questions about such research and may also refuse to participate in certain student assessments. 8.2 The information described above is maintained by the district in its educational records. There are two student record systems: 8.2.1 Cumulative records, gathered on all students in the regular education program and include, but may not be limited to, group achievement and ability measures, Title I services, English Language Learner services, Gifted and Talented services, interest inventories, disciplinary interventions, transcripts and other records, and logs and notes as appropriate; and 8.2.2 Child Study records gathered when direct and indirect services and programs are delivered to individual students and include, but may not be limited to, individually administered achievement tests, sensory and motor function tests, intellectual measures and other records, individual educational plans, evaluation reports, and logs and notes as appropriate. Such services and programs include but are not limited to psychological services, special education services, Title I services, English Language Learner services and Gifted and Talented services. 9. Location of Records The educational records gathered on students are maintained in secure locations in district schools. 9.1 Cumulative records are maintained in the school the student attends. When the student graduates or transfers out of District 196, the records are maintained at the school of last attendance for one year. After one year the records are moved to the District Office and archived into the digital imaging system. 9.2 Current child study records are stored in the school the student attends. Historical child study records are transferred once per year to the District Office (3455 153rd Street West, Rosemount, Minnesota 55068-4946, telephone 651-423- 7628) where they are archived into the digital imaging system. Questions may be addressed to the Director of Special Education or the principal of the school the student attends. 9.3 Records are released to outside individuals or agencies only according to provisions in Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records. 9.4 Parents or students age 18 or older may request an opportunity to inspect records and/or receive copies of records according to provisions in Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records. To make an appointment, Procedure 505.2.10P, Parent or Eligible Student Request to Inspect Records and/or Obtain Copies of Educational Records, should be completed and submitted to the principal of the school the student attends or last attended. 9.5 District policies, regulations and procedures are available on the district website. 10. Complaints for Non-compliance Parent(s), guardian(s), and students age 18 or older may submit written complaints of violation of rights accorded them by 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(g) to the Family Policy Compliance Office, U. S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW; Washington, DC 20202-5920. 11. For More Information This review of the data privacy rights of students, and parent(s) and guardian(s) in the educational records maintained by District 196 is intended only to be a summary of the provisions of Administrative Regulation 505.2AR, Protection and Privacy of Student Records and applicable state and federal law. Requests for copies of the policy or regulation and questions should be addressed to: Director of Special Education, Independent School District 196, 3455 153rd Street West, Rosemount, Minnesota 55068-4946, phone number 651-423-7628.

There are high-achieving students; highly regarded programs in academics, arts and athletics, and highly respected teachers, which have created a high demand for District 196 school. That demand keeps property values high in the district. Berenz shared data developed by the Minnesota Department of Education's finance department to demonstrate the decline of real dollar funding per student over the past decade. While increases to the funding formula from 2003 through 2013 have totaled 15 percent, when adjusted for inflation, MDE shows there has been a significant decline in the dollar value of state funding due to inflation over the past decade. Since 2009, the district has made budget adjustments totaling $34 million. In 2009-10 there were reductions to staffing and building allocations. In 2010-11 144 positions were eliminated, additional programs and transportation were reduced, and fees were increases. In 2011-12 another 47 positions were eliminated, there were further reductions to programs and transportation, and further fee increases. Nearly every employee group has had a two-year salary freeze and the district's total employee costs have decreased each year since 2010. Berenz reported nearly 70 percent of staff live within the district. Berenz noted that despite these adjustments, the district will face $10 million of necessary reductions for 2014-15 and more in 2015-16 without additional levy funding. She has been working this spring with administrators to determine what additional adjustments may be made for next year. Some of the items being discussed include increased class sizes; other staffing cuts, program and service reductions and fee increases. Berenz asked the board to approve the Resolution Relating to Revoking the Existing Referendum Revenue Authorization of the School District, Approving a New Authorization and Calling an Election Thereon (Exhibit G-Revised). The single ballot question will ask voters to revoke the existing levy for $1,111 per pupil and replace it with a new 10-year levy for $1,496 per pupil, an increase of $375 per pupil. This will generate an additional $10 million per year. The net tax impact of the additional funding would be $184 per year, or approximately $15 per month, for the owner of the average-value home, which is currently $225,000. Board members asked the administration to develop a list of the proposed budget adjustments to inform the community of what to expect if a levy renewal does not pass. They expressed their support for a renewal and increase, asked residents to do their own research, and thanked residents for their generous support in the past. They noted that even with a successful levy there may have to be additional budget cuts or increased fees in the near future. Motion by Huusko, seconded by Coulson and carried by roll call vote, with Albright, Coulson, Huusko, Roseen, Schutte, Magnuson and Duchscher voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to approve the resolution calling a special levy referendum election to be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2013. Berenz reported more than 2,000 elementary students are getting a jump start to the school year by attending the Camp Propel summer school. Motion by Magnuson, seconded by Coulson and carried, with seven members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to adjourn the meeting at 6:30 p.m. 3483846 8/23/13
