As part of the litigation, the plaintiffs have requested all student data for any child enrolled in a public school within the state of California at any time since January 1, 2008. This data includes such information as student name, social security number, home address, behavior and discipline information, progress reports, medical and mental health information, and test results. The Court has ordered CDE to provide this data to the plaintiffs’ and their legal counsel.
At the CDE's request, all school districts are providing parents with a link to the CDE's website for more information related to this lawsuit. If parents wish to have their child's data eliminated from the data submitted to the plaintiffs and their legal counsel, they must submit the Objection to Disclosure of Student Information and Records Form directly to the court by April 1, 2016. For more information regarding the release of this data and how you can file an objection with the court to consider not releasing your data, visit: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase . You may also contact the California Department of Education at 916-319-0800.
