ACCESS TO STUDENTS AND DIRECTORY INFORMATION
The Tannehill Public School District restricts recruiting access to students and directory information. Directory information or class lists of student names, addresses, and/or telephone numbers shall not be distributed without the consent of the parent or legal guardian of the student or by the student age 18 or over. Military services representatives shall have access to student directory information unless such access is specifically denied in writing by the parent, legal guardian, or student age 18 or over.
Military services representatives shall have the same access to secondary school students as is generally provided to postsecondary institutions or prospective employers. However, such access may be specifically denied in writing by the parent, legal guardian, or student age 18 or over.
