Disclosure of Class Lists

Personal information such as phone numbers and the grade level of a child are personal information under LAFOIP and should not be shared without permission.

A checkbox on a registration form stating that the phone number can be published on a class list or a phoning tree will be sufficient to obtain consent.

Alternatively a separate form can be used to collect pertinent information and obtain permission for preparation of a class list. The form should specify to whom the list will be distributed.

When class lists are prepared they should contain a clear statement that the list is confidential and is not to be published or used for other purposes.
