Directory Information/Opt Out Form

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) requires that the Fremont Re-2 School District with certain exceptions, obtain your consent in writting prior to the disclosure of PII (Personal Identifiable Information) from your child's educational record.  However, Fremont Re-2 School District or any of its agents may disclose appropriately designated "directory information" without written consent, unless you have advised the district to the contrary in accordance with district procedures.  The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the Fremont Re-2 School District and its agents to include this type of information from your child's education records in certain school publications and for the purpose of creating accounts for digital content and apps.  Examples include but are not limited to:
  • A Playbill, showing your student's role in a drama or music presentation
  • The annual yearbook
  • Honor roll or other recognition lists
  • Graduation programs
  • Sports activities sheets or roster showing height, weight, jersey numbers etc
  • Creation of accounts such as for Google, IXL and online apps used in the classroom
Directory information, which is information that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if released, can also be disclosed to outside organizations without a parent’s prior written consent. Outside organizations include, but are not limited to, companies that manufacture class rings or publish yearbooks. In addition, two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEA) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory information categories – names, addresses, and telephone listings – unless parents have advised the LEA that they do not want their student’s information disclosed without their prior written consent.

If you do not want Fremont Re-2 School District to disclose directory information from your child's education records without your prior consent, you must notify the District in writing by SEPTEMBER 30 for returning students and upon registration for new students each school year.  (click here to view and print the OPT OUT FORM)  Fremont Re-2 School District has designated the following information as directory information:
