California students have just lost the right to the privacy of their data in a court case. The California Department of Education has been asked to release all personal information, including names and social security numbers. This order affects current Foothill Elementary children. For more information about the case and about the PTA’s response, you can click here.
To object, you can fill out a form (one form per child) and send it to the judge.
UPDATE: SEND THE ONE FORM PER STUDENT ONLY TO THE COURT
Follow these step-by-step instructions to complete the Objection to Disclosure of Student Information and Records:
2. Mail the completed form, one for each student, exactly as required to:
United State District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller
c/o Clerk of the Court
Robert T. Matsui United States Courthouse
501 I Street, Room 4-200 Sacramento, CA 95814
Attn: Document Filed Under Seal.
The deadline to submit objection forms and make your voice heard is April 1. Do not fax or email the form, and do not phone or message – only hard-copy forms will be accepted.
