The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records. These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the school as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board. A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer.
For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).

“Student media projects such as video production and website design stimulate learning across the curriculum and are an effective tool to meet content, technology, and 21st century standards,” said Atlanta Public Schools Media Coordinator Warren Goetzel. “The Georgia Student Media Festival allows students to communicate and demonstrate what they are learning and thinking.”

What is the Local School Council (LSC)? Georgia law requires every school system to have a local school council operational in all elementary, middle and high schools. The primary goal of local school councils is to bring communities and schools closer together to make recommendations to solve education problems, to improve academic achievement, to provide support for teachers and administrators, and to bring parents into the school based decision-making process. Translated, we’re a group of school faculty and elected parents who are charged with responding to the needs of each of these groups. We are an advisory group to the Principal, and we can formally raise issues with Atlanta Public Schools that, by law and practice, require an answer. We are not a governance body, we don’t have decision-making authority, but we can influence policy and decisions through our recommendations. We also don’t raise funds, or have authority to say how funds are spent. And, our meetings are open for all interested parties to attend.
Future Foundation’s RealTalk ATL is offering a FREE Healthy Relationships and Parenting Skills Program at Young Middle School, open to all parents/guardians in the Mays Cluster.
It is imperative that we promote a comfortable and welcoming environment in which our students and teachers feel safe, respected and competent.
Overall, students are doing great with adhering to
the“Big 4” :
1. Wear uniform daily
2. No profanity
3. No fighting
4. Be respectful to everyone.
If you have a concern regarding your child's attendance, grades, performance or discipline, please communicate with the teacher first and then with the administration. Teachers are more than willing to speak and conference with you.
Together, we can make a difference, and I hope this school year will be the beginning of a new journey for Jean Childs Young Middle with you in transitioning Jean Childs Young Middle School from GOOD to GREAT!
