Protecting Student Privacy

These records contain personally identifiable information for a large number of public education students.  Records would be released by the CDE not by the El Rancho Unified School District.


These lawsuits focus on compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 programs.  The District has not been provided any information that would specifically indicate whether or not these records pertain to your student(s).


If you do not wish your student’s data to be shared, you must submit an opt-out form to the court.


Please note that the opt-out form must be mailed directly to the court by the April 1, 2016 deadline.

                                    Mail form to:

                                    United States District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller

                                    c/o Clerk of the Court Robert T. Matsui

                                    United States Courthouse

                                    501 I Street, Room 4-200

                                    Sacramento, CA 95814

                                    Attn: Document Filed Under Seal


Again, the District will not release these records; we are providing this notice to you so you can determine whether or not to object to the release of records by the CDE.
