    Voice Your Objection NOW to the Release of Your Child’s Information

    Voice your objection NOW to the release of your child’s personal information.

    A February federal court ruling could require California Department of Education to release all personal data — even including names and Social Security numbers — on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008: more than 10 million students including your child’s information. Take action now to voice your objection to releasing your child’s personal information!

    What you can do right now: Voice your objection

    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:

    1. Download the form — available in English and Spanish:

    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.

    WHAT CALIFORNIA STATE PTA IS DOING

    It’s hard to fathom that a judge would allow such an overexposure of children’s information. While California State PTA is not part of the court ruling, we are exploring other avenues to delay, reduce or possibly reverse the release of so much of our children’s personal information. California State PTA has a long history of protecting and upholding students’ privacy rights, and today is no different. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more

    MORE INFORMATION

    In April 2012, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) alleging non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law.

    While this lawsuit sought students’ general demographic information, a federal court now is considering having the CDE release all data — even including names and Social Security numbers — it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008 – more than 10 million students.
