Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

McKinney ISD provides notice to the parents of each district student at the beginning of each school year, or upon enrollment of the student after the beginning of a school year in the student handbook, the following information. (1) a written explanation of the provisions of the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act of 1974 (20 U.S.C. Sec.1232g), regarding the release of directory information about the student and (2) written notice of the right of the parent to object to the release of directory information about the student under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy act of 1974 (20 U.S.C. Sec.1232g).

The District has designated the following categories of information as directory information for school-sponsored purposes only: student name, photograph/image, date of birth, grade level, enrollment status, dates of attendance, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, honors and awards received, and schools attended by student.

The District shall not release any student directory information to third-party requestors. Parents will have an opportunity during the registration process to either allow or restrict release of student directory information for school-sponsored purposes.

McKinney Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act

The federal McKinney Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act and Texas State law (Texas Education Code Chapter 25) protect the right for homeless children and youth to receive a free and appropriate public education.

Homelessness includes children and youth who are living with a friend, relative or someone else because they lost their home or can’t afford housing, children and youth who are staying in a motel or hotel due to lack of adequate alternative accommodations, children and youth who are living in an emergency or transitional shelter or a domestic violence shelter. It also includes children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations or many other similar settings.

Under the law, no student shall be stigmatized by school personnel due to homelessness. For additional information contact P.J. Holland, McKinney ISD Director of Student Support at 469-302-4000.

Where to find more information?

misdGO

In August 2011, McKinney ISD launched its mobile application, misdGO. With more than 11,000 downloads to date, misdGO is believed to be one of the most comprehensive k-12 apps in the country, providing a host of information to MISD students and parents – news alerts, calendars, lunch menus, access to grades and much more. Push notifications enable the district to send out vital, up to the minute information about school closings due to inclement weather. For more information and download links, go to www.mckinneyisd.net/misdgo or visit the iPhone App Store or Android Market to download the latest version of misdGO today!

McKinney ISD Online

The McKinney ISD website, www.mckinneyisd.net, is the main information hub for the district. Find up-to-date news, departmental and school information, district calendars, teacher and student feature stories and much more!

www.mckinneyisd.net features a clean, organized design, one-click access to district news and events, important quick links, organized departmental web pages, one page access to all district calendars and an all-inclusive multimedia slider that creatively updates visitors on current district news and events through video and audio presentations.


ParentLink

The ParentLink phone system enables the District to inform parents about school and district events, attendance concerns and safety and emergency notifications. There is no need to sign up, as phone numbers are automatically uploaded from campus information systems.

If your phone number should change, please contact your child’s campus and ask the registrar to update your number.

The system is primarily used for four purposes: to provide parents with important district information (such as upcoming TAKS and STAAR testing dates), to provide parents with emergency notifications (such as school closings due to inclement weather), to provide parents with attendance notifications when a child is absent and to notify parents when lunch account balances are low.
