Noncustodial Parents   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Both natural or adoptive 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/ guardians 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 announcements and notices that are sent to the custodial parent.
