Information For Parents Concerning Data Release 

Notice to Parents from Federal Court about the Opportunity to Object to the Release of Educational Data


A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school-year records from the Ohio Department of Education's Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on your district website and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

A copy of the notice - which includes instructions on how parents may object to the data release - can be found here. The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12.

Students' names, addresses and social security numbers are not part of the information to be released. Ohio is one of only three states that do not allow their departments of education to collect this data, to protect student privacy.

Data to be released for each student include student ID number, school name, grade, gender, race, age and disability category. The records also reveal student performance on the state's Ohio Achievement Assessments and Ohio Graduation Tests, as well as tests related to Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Student suspensions and expulsions also are listed.

The data is subject to a protective order, which means Disability Rights Ohio cannot publicize it.
