Under federal law and Highline School Board Policy #3250, Highline Public Schools is prohibited from releasing identifiable student records (except student directory information) without your permission. Student records include, but are not limited to:
- Achievement test scores
- Attendance records
- Disciplinary records
You should know the following regarding student records:
- You have the right to review your child’s student records in the presence of school personnel.
- You may ask the school to amend a record you believe is inaccurate. To do so, clearly identify in writing the change requested, and specify why it is inaccurate.
- Student records may be disclosed without consent to school officials with legitimate educational interests.
For student records requests, please contact the last school attended (for transcript requests please visit the transcript page on the Highline website). If you have questions or concerns about the student records policy or wish to review or amend student records, contact your building principal.
If you believe the school district has failed to protect your student’s privacy rights, you may file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education. Contact:
