Disclosure of Student Records/Data

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CONFIDENTIAL STUDENT DATA:  A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state.  In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws.

The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.  Banta Elementary School district was not a part of this lawsuit. Nonetheless, as a part of this lawsuit, CDE has been ordered by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008.

For more information regarding the release of this data and how you can file an objection with the court to consider not releasing your data, visit: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase
