According to federal law, educational institutions must provide military recruiters, institutions of higher education and prospective employers, access to secondary school students’ names, addresses, and telephone listings. Colorado law states that school districts have 90 days to comply with any military recruiter’s request for this information.
NCLB also states that a secondary school student or the parent of the student may request that the student’s name, address and telephone listing not be released without prior written consent, and the educational institution will notify parents of this option.
District policy KLMA was created to provide high school students with an appropriate way to obtain accurate information regarding potential careers, employers (including the military), and postsecondary educational opportunities, and to provide students convenient access to recruiters representing organizations which provide these kinds of opportunities.
Recruiting and opt-out information is taken care of at registration. Jeffco Public School students who register for grades 9 -12 during high school registration can opt-out online through Jeffco Connect. There are selection buttons in JeffcoConnect signifying that parents/students want to remove contact information from lists provided to recruiters.
For additional information, contact your school, or call the Community Superintendents' office at 303-982-6611.
