Rights of Non-Custodial Parents

Non-custodial parents are entitled to access to student records on the same basis as custodial parents unless there is a court order or provision in the divorce decree prohibiting such access.

Non-custodial parents may be sent information pertaining to school activities - such as newsletters, bulletins, etc. -- if they provide the school with sufficient self-addressed, stamped envelopes.

Non-custodial parents may request, and will be granted, on a reasonable basis, conferences with teachers to discuss their children's progress. The principal will determine the reasonableness of requests for parent conferences, on the part of both custodial and non-custodial parents.

Principals are advised to request a copy of the divorce decree and/or custody agreement to assure that there are no restrictive provisions pertaining to the rights of the non-custodial parent.
