District 25’s Promotional Rights and Philosophy
At all times, District 25 shall strive to ensure that all student names, photographs, videos, interviews, and student work are used appropriately and only by responsible parties. District 25 students may, on occasion, be photographed, video recorded, and/or interviewed by District 25 staff members, other students, District 25 parents/guardians, or outside media/organizations. The names, work, photographs, videos, and/or interviews of students may be used in various publications, including, but not limited to, school yearbooks, school newspapers and newsletters, District 25 publications including the District 25 website and all District 25 associated social media platforms (including classroom/teacher social media accounts), teacher websites, teacher communication tools including but not limited to Seesaw, presentations at professional conferences and Board of Education meetings, district video productions, and outside publications and productions, including newspapers, magazines, television, and outside social media platforms.
Parental Permission and Parental Refusal of Consent
Parents/guardians may elect to prohibit use of their child’s name, work, photograph, video recorded image, schoolwork, or interview in outside publications and productions. In order to do so, parents/guardians must submit a written request (via email or a hard copy letter) to the building’s administration at any time during the school year stating a desire to prohibit the use of their child in any of the ways listed in the District 25’s Promotional Rights and Philosophy section above.
If a parent/guardian elects to prohibit use of a child’s name, work, photograph, video recorded image, and/or interview, District 25 will not use the child’s name, work, photograph, video recorded image, or words in any of the ways listed in the District 25’s Promotional Rights and Philosophy section above. This will include using the child’s name, photograph or video in any student recognition District 25 may choose to publicize in district newsletters or other publications and media, at Board of Education meetings, in video productions, including, but not limited to the District website and on any District 25 associated social media platforms.
Further, District 25 will not grant permission to any individual or organization to use the child’s work, photograph, video recorded image, or words in any publication or production, nor will District 25 release the child’s name, except as provided by law. Please be advised that Board of Education meetings may be covered by the press. It is up to the parent to monitor their child if they are being recognized at a Board of Education meeting.
Student names and examples of ungraded student work may be displayed inside the child’s school or at the District Office without parental permission.
