2021-2022 Return to School Update: TISD
RETURN TO SCHOOL UPDATE: TUSCOLA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL DISTRICT
As we prepare for the return to in-person instruction for the majority of students in Tuscola County, the leaders of the County's nine public school districts and the Tuscola lSD will continue to work in cooperation with the Health Department to ensure a safe start to the school year. While the Pandemic has taken its toll on all of us, our goal is to bring students back into a safe and comfortable environment this month - and keep them there. It is paramount that our students return to school for in-person learning and to ensure the opportunity is available whenever and wherever possible.
With that in mind, we want to put forth a joint plan for the least-disruptive return to school for our students. Please bear in mind that, as from the beginning of the Pandemic, there may be changes to this plan moving forward based on the status of the virus as well as any potential mandates or legislative changes at the state level. Our desire is to communicate a consistent message to ensure our approach moving forward is sensible and concise.

Releasing Student Directory Information
During the course of each school year, school district personnel of Tuscola County are authorized to publish student names, photographs or video recordings, and information in conjunction with school activities.
The information published may include the following: height, weight, honors, grade, awards, date of graduation, parents or guardian names, address, date and place of birth, academic achievement, major fields of study, participation in school activities, and other similar information. Also, the armed services will ask for a mailing address which is within the PA of 1974 guidelines.
District personnel, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, may not release information on students if proper documentation prohibiting this action is filed by the parent, guardian, or eligible student.
Nondisclosure of the above-mentioned information is on an “all or nothing” basis, and parents, guardians, or eligible students may request, in writing, that all directory information is not to be disclosed. The request to “opt out” of such disclosure is to be made to the appropriate building principal during the first two weeks of school for the student. The request will be honored after the written request is received. Requests will also be honored if submitted during the school year.
