Throughout the school year, different media groups (television stations, local newspapers, school production classes, district communications staff, etc.) will produce stories about activities and events happening in the school district. These articles may include photographs and videos that may be posted on the Internet, printed, or aired on television and cable stations. In addition, the district may want to include news about activities and events on its own website and social media platforms.
Parents who DO NOT want their student(s) to be photographed or videotaped for news media or school publicity purposes, should submit a "Media Opt-Out Form."
District staff will make every reasonable effort to identify the primary subjects in photographs and to not publish photos containing students on the opt-out list. The "Media Opt-Out Form" will only be valid for the current school year.
This policy relates to classroom activities or school events that are not already open to the public. Public events such as sporting events, theater productions, etc. are considered open to the public, and outside photographers and videographers are not governed by this policy.
