COURT-ORDERED PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The following procedures have been developed for situations involving court-ordered parental rights and responsibilities, including parenting time, decision-making and release of records:
- The enrollment records of the district will include information regarding the households at which the student resides.
- A student will not be denied admission to school on the basis of refusing the request for documentation of the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities.
- If a student's parents are divorced, legally separated or have other special arrangements with respect to parental rights and responsibilities, school personnel shall request a copy of any and all relevant court orders pertaining to the child, including restraining orders.
- The district will presume that both parents have equal rights and access to a child when that student is registered in school unless the district is provided with a currently effective Colorado court order indicating otherwise.
- If a school official is in doubt about the validity of a request or documentation presented, the official will contact the District’s Office of Legal Counsel.
- The official shall request positive identification of any individual making a request for release or visitation of a student. If a person making a request for release or visitation refuses to leave the school premises at the principal's request, the principal may contact the appropriate law enforcement agency.
- Contact from an attorney on behalf of a parent may be referred to the District’s Office of Legal Counsel.
