High School 9-12
Students who are 18 years of age or older must follow all school district policies and all school regulations, including the regulations that are outlined in the student handbook. Additionally, when a student turns 18 years of age, the following rules will apply:
- All rights to make educational decisions will transfer to the student, including the right to make decisions about special education, unless a conservator or legal guardian has been appointed for the student.
- Subject to all applicable laws, the school district may continue to provide educational data to the parent(s)/guardian(s) of an adult student, provided that the parent(s)/guardian(s) continue to claim the adult student as a dependent for tax purposes. If an adult student is claimed as a dependent but the student does not want the district to share educational data with his or her parents/guardians, the student may submit a written request for the district to end all communications with the parent(s)/guardian(s). The district will evaluate such requests on a case-by-case basis to determine the appropriate course of action.
- If the district grants an adult student’s written request to stop sharing educational data with the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s), and the student later changes his or her mind, the student will be required to submit a signed form authorizing the district to resume sharing educational data on the student with the parents/guardians.
