Confidentiality to Access Children’s Records

All information contained in student's records, including information contained in an electronic database, is confidential and maintained in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. These records are the property of Launch, whose responsibility it is to secure the information against loss, defacements, tampering or use by unauthorized persons. Please do not speak about children in hallways or public areas. The information about children is confidential and must not be discussed in the outside community. No child's files are to be taken off premises unless granted permission by the Executive Director.

Only teachers, administrative and office personnel are permitted to review the children's files. When a file is requested from the main office, it must be signed out and returned the same day. Files may not be copied without express authorization from the Executive Director or his or her designee. If a file is needed by 8:00 a.m. the following morning, you must request this file the day before, not later than 2:30 p.m. and that file will be pulled and ready for you when you arrive the following day. Please do not remove any materials from any student's file. Files may not leave the building without specific written authorization from the Executive Director or his or her designee. If you request a student’s file, you will be responsible for its contents.
