Protection of Pupil Privacy (PPRA)

The Protection of Pupil Privacy (PPRA) requires South Brunswick School District to annually allow parents or guardians the opportunity to opt their child out of participating in certain school activities such as a student survey, analysis or evaluation that concerns one or more of the following areas: political affiliations or beliefs of the student or student's parents or guardians; mental or psychological problems of the student or student's family; sex behavior or attitudes; illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating or demeaning behavior; critical appraisals of others with whom respondents have close family relationships; legally recognized privileged relationships, such as with lawyers, doctors or ministers; religious practices, affiliations or beliefs of the student or parents or guardians; or income other than as required by law to determine program eligibility. The PPRA requirement also applies to the collection, disclosure or use of student information for marketing purposes (“marketing survey”) and certain physical exams and screenings.
