Notice of Designation of Limited Directory Information

The Bulloch County Board of Education designates certain student information as limited directory information. Disclosures of directory information will be limited to specific parties, for specific purposes or both. The list of limited directory information includes the following:

  • a student’s name;
  • address;
  • telephone number;
  • email address;
  • and place of birth;
  • school;
  • grade level;
  • participation in officially recognized school activities and sports;
  • weight and height of members of athletic teams;
  • dates of attendance at schools within the district;
  • diplomas, certifications, honors and awards received during the time enrolled in the district’s schools;
  • previous school or educational institution attended by the student;
  • official school photograph; parents’/guardians’ legal names.

Limited directory information will be released for the specific purposes listed under Student Media Release to Bulloch County Schools’ education partners. Vendors that we contract with may be provided with limited directory information. In addition, two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving assistance under the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory informational categories - names, addresses, and  telephone listings - unless parents have advised the Local Education Agency (LEA) they do not want their student’s information disclosed without their prior written consent.

Any parent or student refusing to have any or all of the designated directory information disclosed, including directory information that may be disclosed to military recruiters, institutions of higher education, and school system publications, must file written notification to that effect with the principal of the school which the student attends within 30 days of enrolling in each school year. Forms for this purpose are available in the principal’s office.

In the event a refusal is not filed, Bulloch County Schools and the school which the child attends assume that neither the parent nor eligible student objects to the release of the designated directory information.
