Policy: JLDBAA - Parental Notification Related to Student Safety

Date Adopted: 1 May 2013

Current Review / Revision: 1 May 2013

The Emery County School District strives to insure the safety and wellbeing of all students and believes that this effort should be in cooperation with parents/guardians. For this purpose the following policy has been developed to foster communication and to unite with parents/guardians in making sure students are safe.

For the purpose of this policy, "parent" includes a student's guardian.

It is the policy of the Emery County School District that a school shall notify a parent if the parent's student threatens to commit suicide or of the student's involvement in an incident of bullying, cyber bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation.

If a school notifies a parent of an incident or threat required to be reported under this policy, the school shall produce and maintain a record that verifies that the parent was notified of the incident or threat.

Records related to notification of parents under this policy are private records for the purposes of the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA). A school may not disclose a record under this policy, including any information obtained to prepare the record, to a person other than a person authorized to receive the record, which include the student's parent or another person pursuant to the terms of a court order.

At the request of a parent, a school may provide information and make recommendations related to an incident or threat covered in this policy .
