Privacy Act: Military Recruiting Opt-Out Notice

Just posted at DOE Hawaii: Military Recruiting Opt-Out Notice [pdf]

“The Federal Every Student Succeeds Act, (ESSA) requires the Department of Education (DOE) to provide to military recruiters, upon their request, the name, address, and telephone number of secondary school students. Although military recruiters focus their efforts on high school juniors and seniors, the law allows for the gathering of this information from the broad category of “secondary” students. Secondary school students are defined as students enrolled in middle, intermediate and high schools. It also applies to students in grades 7 through 12 in combination elementary/secondary schools (e.g., K-7, K-8, K-9, K-11, K-12, 7-12). If any secondary student or the parent/guardian of a secondary student does not want the DOE to provide the requested information to military recruiters, the secondary student or the parent/guardian must “opt out” of providing such information. To do this, a legible, signed written request needs to be submitted to the school office. The request must contain the school name and the student’s name and birth date. Although not legally required, the DOE has developed an “opt out” form for military recruiting to facilitate response from students or their parents/guardians.”
