Parent, Student & Employee Notifications

Board of Education Required Notices:

Students, their parents/guardians, staff members, and administrators are responsible for following all current policies and regulations set forth by the Old Saybrook Board of Education. Board policies are essential to the health, safety, and well-being of all students and staff as well as the effective, efficient, and consistent operations of the school district. Please note that policies may be revised by the Board of Education during the school year. When such changes occur, administration will follow relevant public notice requirements. A complete set of published policies and regulations are available on the district website and upon request at each school office, and the Board of Education Office for reference.

We strongly request that all parents/guardians review with their children the required notices and frequently requested policies listed below. Policies are coded within a series and further defined by sub policies that are identified by a decimal number. Each policy number listed here will link to the policy. The reader may then scroll the document to reach the sub-policy.

STUDENT DATA PRIVACY

The District complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as well as the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
