Student Personally Identifiable Information

There are two types of student personally identifiable information collected and maintained by Liberty Common School in its electronic-data system that are not reported to the Colorado Department of Education: (a) directory information; and, (b) confidential student-record information.


DIRECTORY INFORMATION is information contained in a student’s education record that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Directory information includes, but is not limited to, the student’s name, photograph, audio and/or video recordings, major field of study, grade level, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, honors and awards received, and the most recent educational agency or institution attended. Directory information does not include the student’s telephone number or address. Directory information is included in such general-school publications as class rosters, athletic rosters, and school-performance and awards programs. As such, it may be disclosed to the general public.


CONFIDENTIAL STUDENT RECORD INFORMATION may only be disclosed as authorized under the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Liberty Common School Policy.  Click here to access description of confidential student; record information collected and maintained by Liberty Common School in its electronic-data systems that is not reported to the Colorado Department of Education.
