Authorization to Request / Release Pupil Records and Photos
I give permission to the George B. Thomas Learning Academy (the “Learning Academy”) and Montgomery County Public Schools (“MCPS”) to share information about my child as described below for program planning and to evaluate the effectiveness of the Saturday School.
The Learning Academy will share the following information about your child with MCPS:
Student name; Student ID number; Student birthdate; Saturday School site; Saturday School attendance.
For program planning, MCPS will share the following information from your child’s student record with the Learning Academy:
Selection for honor roll, or a higher designation, and academic assessments (such as MAP-R and MAP-M scores).
For evaluation, MCPS will match student information from the Learning Academy with grades and assessment scores from student records. MCPS will then remove all references to student name and student ID number to evaluate the impact of the Saturday School on improving students’ academic outcomes. The results of MCPS’ evaluation will be reported to the Learning Academy in summary fashion, with no individual students identified.
The Learning Academy and MCPS will not share your child’s personal information with others and will take steps to safeguard the information at all times.
I give permission for my child to be included in any photographs taken or videos made of the Saturday School to be used in the Learning Academy’s marketing materials.
