Press ReleasesProtection 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.
