Notice for Directory Information
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that the Hinton Community School District, with certain exceptions, obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child's education records. However, Hinton School may disclose appropriately designated "directory information" without written consent, unless you have advised the District to the contrary in accordance with District procedures.
