Parents/caregivers will be asked to share students’ personal information with the school staff or give their consent for staff to access students’ personal information held by other individuals or agencies. Parents/caregivers may also be asked to allow the school to share students’ personal information with individuals outside of Hull School.
In most cases, parents/caregivers must provide written consent before Hull School can share students’ personal history or information with others. There are a few situations where information about a student may be shared with others without the parents/caregivers permission.
These situations include:
- The receipt of a legal subpoena: a judge asks for the information.
- A medical emergency.
- Information received by Hull School staff suggesting there has been child abuse or neglect.
- If the Minister of Child and Family Services presents Hull School with a court order.
The Calgary Board of Education Administrative Regulation 6024 - Student Records lists other situations in which information can be released.If parents/caregivers have any questions about the confidentiality of your records, please speak to your school transition counsellor, school principal or program director.
