Military Exclusion Form

In accordance with the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Hopkins School District 270 is required to release the names, addresses and telephone number(s) of students in 11th and 12th grades to military recruiters. Parents have the right to refuse the release of this data to military recruiting officers.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act protects the privacy of student education records.

A secondary institution shall give parents and students notice of the right to refuse release of this data to military recruiting officers. Notice may be given by any means reasonably likely to inform the parents and students of the right. Data released to military recruiting officers under this subdivision:

  • May be used only for the purpose of providing information to students about military service, state and federal veterans' education benefits, and
  • Other career and educational opportunities provided by the military; and Shall not be further disseminated to any other person except personnel of the recruiting services of the armed forces.
