Students and the Military
In the past, it has been the policy of the New Paltz Central School District to limit access to military recruiters about school and student information. However, pursuant to the Federal No Child Left Behind Act, and then the Every Student Succeeds Act, the New Paltz Central School District must disclose to military recruiters and institutions of higher learning, upon request, the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of high school students. The School District must also notify parents/guardians of their right and the right of their child to request that the District not release such information without the prior written parental consent. Therefore, if you, as a parent/guardian of a high school student, or a high school student, wish to exercise your option to withhold your consent to the release of the above information to military recruiters and/ or institutions of higher learning, you must complete, sign, date, and return the form provided by the High School Main Office, or send a letter to that effect to the attention of the High School Principal.
