BCHS Handbook for Students and Parents
Military Recruiters and Access to Student Information
Pursuant to the No Child Left Behind Act, the school district must disclose to military recruiters and institutions of higher learning, upon request, the names, addresses and telephone numbers of high school students. This information is routinely used by members of the Armed Services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps) as well as colleges, vocational schools, collegiate scholarship information services and graduation apparel companies. The district must also notify parents of their right and the right of their child to request that the district not release such information without prior written parental consent. Parents and students wishing to exercise their option to withhold their consent to the release of the above information to military recruiters and/or institutions of higher learning must fill-out, sign and return the “Military Recruiters Opt-Out Form” to the BCMS Main Office by October 1. This form is sent to all student families in the back-to-school packet in August of each year.
