Parents can opt to keep kids' information private
The federal No Child Left Behind Act provides that high schools will, upon request by military recruiters for recruiting purposes, release student names, addresses and telephone numbers to military personnel.
However, the Carroll County school system will not release a student's information if a parent or guardian provides a letter stating that permission for such release is not granted.
Parents or guardians who do not want their child's information to be released to military personnel must submit a written statement to the school principal on or before Sept. 30.
Information: Cynthia Little, director of Student Services, 410-751-3123; or Barbara Guthrie, supervisor of Guidance, 410-751-3125.
