8350 - CONFIDENTIALITY
It is the policy of the School Board that when the Corporation receives in trust from a public agency information identified as confidential (whether such information is confidential by the Indiana Code, Common Law, Privilege Case Law or Federal Law), the Board will maintain the confidentiality of said information to the maximum extent permitted by the law.
This policy applies only to identified confidential information received from a public agency. However, under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, anything that is made part of the student's records will be sent to a receiving School Corporation with notice to the parent.
In order to prohibit the unauthorized disclosure of information identified as confidential by the sending public agency, the Board may seek to obtain court protection by:
|A.||denying requests for release of such information absent subpoena or court order;|
|B.||pursuing motions to quash or protective orders to prohibit unauthorized disclosure.|
When possible, the Board will attempt to notify the sending public agency of the request for release of such information prior to complying with the request.
