CONSENT TO DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO PARENT(S)/LEGAL GUARDIAN(S) – ADULT STUDENTS

Tuesday, September 08, 2020

When a student reaches the age of 18 years old, the student is an “adult” for the purposes of the Education Act and the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, which stipulates the adult student’s written consent is required for the school or TDSB to disclose their personal information.

“Personal information” may include report cards, transcripts, attendance record(s), late/absent notifications, excursion forms, and all regular school communications, including any other official record pertaining to the student’s ongoing education at the Toronto District School Board.

In order for the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) to continue receiving information about their adult student’s education (e.g. report cards, parent-teacher interviews) and regular school communications (e.g. absent/late notifications), the TDSB requires the adult student’s written consent as indicated below.

If the adult student does not provide consent, then the school and TDSB will be unable to provide personal information to the adult student’s parent(s)/legal guardian(s) and will communicate with the adult student.
