If you are the parent or guardian of an 11th- or 12th-grader enrolled in public school, please read on. If you know a parent (or student) that can use this info, please pass it on.
According to the No Child Left Behind Act, your school must release your child’s contact information on demand to military recruiters. But if you act now, you can stop these recruiters from invading the privacy of your home by trying to convince your child to join the military. To say “no” to the school’s release of your child’s information, you must inform the school in writing of your desires no later than Sept. 20.
There is a simple form that should have been provided with your child’s enrollment materials; if not, it should still be available at the school.
If you have problems getting this form from your school, or if you need help with what to write to opt out, call the Oklahoma Center for Conscience at 405.445.0115.
Print and sign this generic form if you do not have a form available in your enrollment packet: http://snipr.com/mil-opt-out
