Dear Students and Families,
The N.Y.C. Department of Education works with the U.S. Department of Education and the National Student Clearinghouse (N.S.C.) to provide information on high school graduates’ college performance. In order for the D.O.E. to collect data and information on FAFSA completion and college enrollment from the U.S. Department of Education and the N.S.C., the D.O.E. will be sharing names, addresses, grade levels and dates of birth of students.
For the D.O.E. to do this, federal law regarding student privacy requires us to provide you with notice and an opportunity for you to instruct the D.O.E. not to release this information. Please see attached “Opt-Out” form. If you completed an “Opt-Out” form last year concerning these designations, your opt-out remains effective and there is no need to resubmit this form.
Completed “Opt-Out” forms must be returned to room 135 by January 29.
