E. The law holds that parents do not cease to be parents when they no longer have custody of their children. Saint Joseph School abides by the provisions of the Buckley Amendment with respect to the rights of non-custodial parents. In the absence of a court order to the contrary, a school will provide the non-custodial parent with access to the academic records and to other school-related information regarding the child. If there is a court order specifying that there is to be no information given, it is the responsibility of the custodial parent to provide the school with an official copy of that court order. If the child is not to be released to the non-custodial parent a copy of the custodial section of the divorce decree must be provided to our school.
