Listed below are the reports and forms the district is required to provide in one location for your convenience.
Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) outlines rights of parents with the Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO). The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. For more information about this law, please go to the U.S. Department of Education's website and click on the Family Policy Compliance Office - FPCO webpage.

Environmental Testing Information
To protect public health, the Public Health Law and New York State Health Department (NYSDOH) regulations require that all public schools and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) test lead levels in water from every outlet that is being used, or could potentially be used, for drinking or cooking. If lead is found at any water outlet at levels above 15 parts per billion (ppb), which is equal to 15 micrograms per liter (µg/L), the NYSDOH requires that the school take action to reduce the exposure to lead.

Indoor Air Quality Report
March 9, 2020
At the February 2020 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Bonnewell shared the results of the Air Quality Evaluation Mrs. Nellie Brown of Cornell University performed at our Elementary School during September 2019. A copy of her report and a summary of findings that was shared with the Board can be found below by accessing the links.
In short, Mrs. Brown shared in her report and her presentation to teacher leaders and administrators at the end of her evaluation visits to the school that our building is well built, well maintained, and well cared for and that there was no “smoking gun” related to the concern about staff breast cancer cases.
Most of the improvements she suggested were implemented while she was still here or shortly after. We are researching a means to address her concern about carpet in front of classroom sinks, but want to find a solution better than hard tile – which could create a slip and fall hazard.

Photographs of Students
During the school year, students may be photographed or videographed for use in school publications and on our website and social media platforms. Students recognized for achievement or participation may be named in school publications or on our website and social media platforms. If you do not want your child’s photograph, video or name published, please contact the district office at 585-589-2056.
Videotaping of Classrooms
New York State now requires that student teachers include a videotape of their classroom experience as part of their curriculum. If your child has a student teacher, they may be videotaped in the classroom. No student will be individually identified by their last name in the video. If you do not want your student included in this component of a student teacher’s course work, please contact the district office at 585-589-2056.
