Mountain View Whisman School District
Agenda Item for Board Meeting of 9/6/2018
Agenda Category: REVIEW AND ACTION
Agenda Item Title: Board Policy No. 5125, Student Records (5 minutes)
Person Responsible: Carmen Ghysels, Chief Human Relations Officer
The District is the process of updating policies at the recommendation of the California School Boards Association. Board Policy No. 5125, Student Records has been updated to reflect those recommendations.
The policy has been updated to reflect the California Attorney General's model policy, developed pursuant to new law (AB 699), which (1) prohibits districts from collecting information regarding students' citizenship or immigration status, and (2) requires district staff to receive training in the gathering and handling of sensitive student information. The policy also reflects state law limiting the collection of students' social security numbers or the last four digits of the social security numbers, and new law (SB 31), which prohibits districts from assisting in the compilation of a list, registry, or database based on students' national origin, ethnicity, or religion.
That the Board approve Board Policy No. 5125, Student Records at first reading, as presented.
