Authorization to Release Student Information Form

The student must come to the Plan II Honors office and see an adviser to sign the waiver.  This form will not be available for download.

FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, is a federal law that pertains to the release of and access to student educational records. The law, also known as the Buckley Amendment, applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the US Department of Education.

If a student wishes to sign a waiver allowing a Plan II adviser to discuss the student's academic record with his/her parents, the student must sign a waiver of the education privacy rights.  The form will be kept in the student's file and will be valid for one year. The student must sign a form each year the student wishes to waive the FERPA privacy rights.

Go to FERPA or US Department of Education Policy Guide to learn more.

Photo Release Form

We ask all our students to download, complete and submit the photo release form. If Plan II Honors is free to use photographic images of you on the Plan II Honors web site and/or publications, please sign and submit the form at the Plan II front desk. The photographs we might use would include photos of you at Plan II events, meeting, classes, or celebrations (Parents' Day, Graduation, class meetings, award ceremonies, Voltaire's Coffees or Voltaire's Cinemas, Joynes Events, etc.).

If you do not wish us to use any photographs with your image on our website or in our publications, please state so on the form, sign and submit it.
