The Waterford Unified School District would like to welcome students and parents to the 2016-17 school year. WUSD is off to an amazing start and we are excited for our upcoming year! Waterford Unified recognizes the important role that parents play in their students' lives, and encourages parents to be active participants in The Waterford Unified community. You will find resources, links and information that you may find helpful on this site. Please feel free to contact the district or your student's school site with any further information needs.
The California Department of Education
The California Department of Education (CDE) is currently engaged in litigation with two non-profit associations comprised of parents and guardians of children with disabilities. The plaintiffs in that litigation have requested numerous documents, as well as student data collected and stored by CDE, which may include personally identifiable student information.
To comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), CDE has been ordered, among other things, to inform parents and students of the disclosure of such information. CDE has requested that school districts and SELPAs post the following link to CDE’s website: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase. The link provides a Notice and Objection Form to allow parents to object, by April 1, 2016, to the disclosure of personally identifiable information related to their children.
Please understand that the district is not a party to the litigation and is not required to disclose any student information, nor does it intend to do so. For more information, please contact CDE directly at (916) 319-0800.
