Section K of Act 837, LA's student data privacy law, addresses a consent form that must be provided by the districts annually to parents of 8th - 12th grade students:
"No data shall be collected pursuant to this Subsection, unless a student's parent or legal guardian provides written consent. The form will contain the following:
A statement notifying the student's parent or legal guardian exactly what items of student information will be collected and that disclosure of the student information collected will be restricted to Louisiana postsecondary educational institutions and the Office of Student Financial Assistance to be used solely for the purpose of processing applications for admission and for state and federal financial aid.
A statement whereby a student's parent or legal guardian acknowledges that failure to provide written consent for the collection and disclosure of the student's information as provided in this Subsection may result in delays or may prevent successful application for admission to a postsecondary educational institution and for state and federal student financial aid. This statement shall be displayed prominently and shall be printed in bold type.”
