Okay, so BB’s principal called me in response to my email (see previous post), and here’s the deal:
- The school provides student directory information (name/parent name/phone number/address) to three companies/organizations: the companies that do the yearbooks and class rings, and the military.
- Those who receive this information enter into an agreement that they will not sell/give the information to anyone else.
- Parents can opt to remove their child’s name from the directory and avoid all of the marketing junk.
I pointed out that it would be nice of the school to provide this information to the parents at the beginning of the school year. Then I had BB’s name and info removed from the directory for the remainder of her high school career.
So there you have it. That’s the whole story.
