Use of Photographs of Students

The Web site will not include photographs of students unless permission has been granted by the student’s parents or legal guardians or if the student(s) cannot be individually identified in the photographs, such as in large groups. 

At no time will students’ full names be used to identify them in a photograph on the Web site without special, express written permission from parents. In the event that a photograph accompanies a story in which students are identified by first and last name, one of the following measures should be taken:

  • Change the story to include only students’ first names and last initials;
  • Do not include the photo with the story;
  • Contact the parents of the pictured students to obtain special, express written permission to include students’ full names as part of the photo caption or, if the photo will not include a caption, as part of the story.
