Information Collected and How it is Used

If you do nothing during your visit but browse or download information, we collect and store the following information about your visit:
• The type of browser and operating system you used. 
• The date and time you visited the site. 
• The web pages or services you accessed at this site. 
• The name of the search engine and the search phrase used to get here.
This information is automatically collected and is used to improve the content of our web services and to help us understand how people are using our services. These logs are not personally identifiable and we make no attempt to link them to individuals.

Personal Information

We don't collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, participate in a survey or to provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse the organization's web site and read or download any information provided on the site.

How Personal Information is used:

If you send an e-mail to us, it will be forwarded to those individuals (employees, school board members) necessary to address that e-mail. E-mail is recognized as written communication and is considered public record. If a request for public information is submitted to the district, any information contained in that e-mail, including the address, could be released.

If you choose to provide personal information about yourself in that e-mail, we will use the information only to respond properly to your request or to fulfill the stated purpose of the communication. We will not disclose any personal information you decide to provide us, unless disclosure is required by state law or school board policy (School Board Policy 823.51 "Availability of Records"). We do not share, disclose or sell e-mail addresses to other organizations.

Please also keep in mind that e-mail is not necessarily secure against third party interception. If your communication is very sensitive or includes personal information, you may want to contact us by postal mail or telephone instead.

If you use one of our public comment forms, your name, contact information, and comments may be subject to public disclosure. They will be considered written communication and could be released subject to the guidelines outlined in School Board Policy 823.51 "Availability of Records."

Phone numbers and emails collected through these forms are used only by members of the board and school district employees to respond to your comments. We do not share, disclose or sell e-mail addresses or phone numbers to other organizations.

Rules for Sending Comments

The Board shall not hear any complaints against pupils or District employees unless such complaints have been heard by the superintendent through proper channels, including the Citizens Complaint process. Exceptions to this policy include negotiated agreements, which may have overriding appeals language, and civil or legal appeals, which supersede School Board authority.
