    Student Records

    File: 3231

    Lake Washington School District shall maintain only those student records necessary for the educational welfare of students, for orderly and efficient operation of schools, and as required by law. All information related to individual students shall be treated in a confidential and professional manner. Student records are the property of the district but shall be available in an orderly and timely manner to student, parent, step-parent, or legal guardian. A parent may challenge any information in a student record believed inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of the privacy or other rights or the student. 

    Parental consent shall be required before the school district may release student records to any individual, agency or organization, except as otherwise provided by law. When a student has attained the age of eighteen years and is no longer dependent or is attending an institution of post-secondary education, the rights accorded to and the consent of the parents under this policy shall thereafter only be accorded to and required of the student. Students between sixteen and eighteen who have been granted legal emancipation from their parents or guardians have the same rights as eighteen year old students. 

    Pursuant to this policy, the superintendent of schools shall establish procedures governing the content, management, and control of student records. This policy shall not apply to records required for reports of child abuse and neglect as mandated by RCW 26.44.010 through RCW 26.44.080.
