Education Rights And Privacy Act top
The President of the United States signed this
act into law on 21 August 1975. School records
open for parental inspection are defined as "any and all
official records, files, and data related directly to a student." These
would include the following information: completed academic work, level of
achievement (grades, standardized achievement test scores and the like, interest
inventory data, family background, and verified reports of serious or recurrent
behavior). Along with the right of parents to inspect school records, goes
the provision that they may also inspect all instructional materials used in
federally supported progress programs designed to explore or develop new or
unproved teaching methods or techniques. The following items of information
will be maintained on each student at Kubasaki High School:
card (DS Form 600)
Permanent Records Folder (DSP Form 400, DS200)
Pupil Personnel Service Referral Form
Health Record (DSPA Form 122).
The official responsible for the records is the school principal. Only authorized
personnel with a "need to know" will be permitted access to this
information without parental consent.
of Permanent Record" form will be provided when
you notify the school of a rotation/withdrawal date.
a Request for Records from another school is received,
a form, signed by the parent, will give the school
permission to release student records to that school.
Parent Center top
The Kubasaki High School (KHS) Parent Center is a place that is set aside for
the purpose of making school accessible and helpful to family members and encouraging
involvement in their children’s learning. It is a place that contains
resources and scheduled activities to provide parents with knowledge, skills,
and attitudes that enable their children to learn, to complete their education,
and to become contributing members of society. The KHS Parent Center is a place
that will have numerous resources such as educational materials, activities,
supplies, and training for family members to use with children.
Parent Center’s goals are:
-To provide a place where parents can participate
in a variety of training programs
-To make a variety of resources available for use by parents and families
-To foster relationships between families for the purpose of helping each other
by sharing successes
-To provide a meeting place for parents and teachers to discuss ways to help
children sharpen learning skills
-To provide a tutoring-friendly atmosphere for volunteers to help children
learn study techniques and to provide the volunteers/children with helpful
-To provide a place where parents will always feel welcome; a place of belonging
and a creative place, not bound by rules of the past, thus enabling families
to build new programs and activities
-To provide a symbolic statement for the learning community which emphasizes
the importance that parents/families have to our school’s learning climate
and to the development of children who value life-long learning.
Non-Sponsored Activities top
DSM Manual 2000.1, Administrator's Guide, states that the school cannot have
a role in providing funding, sponsoring, or providing released time for an
overnight class trip. Further, day trips will not be school-sponsored unless
they have educational value, which relate especially to DoDDS education objectives. "Overnight" secondary
school class trips (or overnight sleep-overs on campus) are not considered
to be a school function. Such an activity is not an approved activity for DoDDS-P
schools. Parents or other community groups sponsoring such social trips must
accept full responsibility for the event. School or class funds may not be
expended for the activity. Therefore, according to the explicit guidance above,
such social activities as senior trips, "skip" days, and trips to
the beach will not be school sponsored. While this institution takes full responsibility
for school sponsored programs; it cannot be held accountable when the participation
is in non-school activities. We hope that parents closely examine social activities
to determine who is involved in the planning and participation and who is responsible
for the sponsorship needs. Please call the school if you have a question regarding
the sponsorship of programs involving our teenagers.
Parents and teachers have, as their first concern, the welfare and development
of students. For this reason, it is important for parents and teachers to work
together to help each student. At Kubasaki High School, report cards are to
be picked up by the parent and student on a designated day at the end of the
first marking period. At this time, open conferences are held. (Report cards
are mailed for Quarters 2, 3, and 4.) Parents may see those teachers they wish
to see as well as those teachers who have requested a parent conference. Throughout
the school year, parents may schedule conferences as they feel necessary. It
is requested that parents call the school Counseling Center for teacher’s
conference at 645-6888.
Organization (PTSO) top
Kubasaki High School has an active Parent/Teacher/Student Organization that
is held on the second Tuesday of every month at 1800 in the Library Media Center

Department of Defense Instruction 5105.49 mandates the creation of local School
