Custodial/Non-Custodial Parents

The District encourages parents to be involved in their child’s education and, unless otherwise ordered by the courts, an order of sole custody on the part of one parent shall not deprive the other parent of the following:

  • Receiving and inspecting school records and consulting with school staff concerning the child’s welfare and education; and
  • Authorizing emergency medical, dental, psychological, psychiatric or other health care for the child if the custodial parent is, for practical reasons, unavailable.

It is the responsibility of the parent with sole custody to provide any court order that curtails the rights of the non-custodial parent at the time of enrollment or any other time a court order is issued.

Non-custodial parents will not be granted visitation or telephone access to the child during the school day. The child will not be released to the non-custodial parent without written permission of the custodial parent or in compliance with parenting time obligations outlined in a court order provided to the District.

In the case of joint custody, the District will adhere to all conditions specified and ordered by the court. The District may request in writing any special requests or clarifications in areas concerning the child and the District’s relationship and responsibilities.
