Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Good afternoon, Mr. Nash.
Henry County Public Schools does not contract with nor does it provide
student identifiable data to third party companies that use student data
for their own purposes except for the state of Virginia and federal
government and then only as required by law/statute. These include state
student record collections and master schedule collections and federal
Office of Civil Rights data collections.
Our division uses Power School Registration to collect permissions from
parents regarding student information collection and sharing. A copy of the
statements to which parents agree in this electronic platform is attached.
Policies related to student data usage can be found here:
Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.
