Eliminate Student ID cards & Sticker Charges

This petition had 28 supporters


2 days lunch detention for not wearing a school ID, what kind of punishment is this for any student to include the fact that his ID was in perfect view on his backpack? I, Rebecca Vargas Garza, will be starting this petition for CSCISD to eliminate students from wearing their ID's where they are openly visible. After all, isn't this why we have had them remember their ID #'s beginning in Pre-K - wouldn't you think this be the most efficient money saving identifier? OUR CHILDREN ARE NOT CONVICTS! Please share and participate if you’re interested. Wearing student ID's is not A SCHOOL BOARD/TEA POLICY & CHARGING THE KIDS $1 FOR A TEMPORARY STICKER ID WITH A ROLL OF 500 STICKERS ALSO FOLLOWS UNDER PROHIBITED FEES (Illegal charges) BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A MANDATED RULE TO OBTAIN DAILY CURRICULUM. This is a school profit of $500+, where is this money going? My children personally do not carry cash and must feel embarrassed to have to go and seek a dollar from a friend if they're lucky for a rule that DOES NOT EXIST. If they can't find this $1 they will then have it placed on their "yearly dues" which then effects end of year activities such as field trips, prom, and promotion to the next grade level until all dues are paid. The student ID's were created to maintain attendance but because the school district cannot afford portable scanners the district just decided to use them for students that are tardy. Regardless, if they did have the portable scanners this would be useless as they would spend a lot of instructional time scanning ID's each class period (if this were an actual TEA/SCHOOL BOARD POLICY) instead of focusing on their daily lessons.

SECTION III: DIRECTORY INFORMATION

STUDENT RECORDS FL
(LEGAL)
DATE ISSUED: 7/10/2016 pg. 18 of 23
UPDATE 105
FL(LEGAL)-P

“Directory information” means information contained in an education
record of a student that would not generally be considered
harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Directory information
includes the student’s name, address, telephone listing, electronic
mail address, photograph, date and place of birth, dates of attendance,
grade level, enrollment status, participation in officially recognized
activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic
teams, honors and awards received, and the most recent
educational agency or institution attended. “Directory information”
does not include a student’s:
1. Social security number; or
2. Student identification (ID) number, unless:
a. The student ID number, user ID number, or other unique
personal identifier used by a student for purposes of accessing
or communicating in electronic systems cannot
be used to gain access to education records except
when used in conjunction with one or more factors that
authenticate the user’s identity, such as a personal identification
number (PIN), password, or other factor known
or possessed only by the authorized user; or
b. The student ID number or other unique personal identifier
that is displayed on a student ID badge cannot be
used to gain access to education records except when
used in conjunction with one or more factors that authenticate
the user’s identity, such as a PIN, password, or
other factor known or possessed only by the authorized
user.
A district may release directory information if it has given public notice
of:
1. The types of personally identifiable information that it has designated
as directory information.
2. The right of the parent to refuse to permit the district to designate
any or all of that information about the student as directory
information.
3. The period of time within which the parent must notify the district
in writing that he or she does not want any or all of those
types of information about the student designated as directory
information.
A parent or eligible student may not use the right of refusal to opt
out of directory information disclosures to prevent a district from
disclosing or requiring a student to disclose the student’s name,
identifier, or institutional e-mail address in a class in which the student
is enrolled.

In Class - A parent or eligible student may not use the right of refusal to opt
out of directory information disclosures to prevent a district from
disclosing or requiring a student to disclose the student’s name,
identifier, or institutional e-mail address in a class in which the student
is enrolled. - SEE DIRECTORY INFORMATION ABOVE

THIS CLEARLY DOES NOT STATE THAT THE CHILDREN ARE OBLIGATED TO WEAR ID's AND BE PUNISHED FOR NOT HAVING THEM WRAPPED AROUND THEIR NECK TO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES yet they are in fact obligated to provide the necessary requested directory information.
