California Department of Education Lawsuit/ Confidential Data

Important Information Regarding Confidential Student Data


In the interest of keeping our parents and families current with educational legal landscapes and regulations, please find the following information regarding students who have special needs.  


In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.


Our school district was not involved in the lawsuit and is not the subject of any of the suit’s allegations.


Nonetheless, as a part of this lawsuit, California Department of Education has been ordered by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since January 1, 2008. For more information regarding the release of this data visit:http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase


Please note that CDE will notify parents/students if their data will be collected, and those individuals may object directly to the court using the following form:http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/ws/documents/form2016jan26.pdf
