You must inform your school’s students and their families that they may refuse mailings by submitting the Charter School Promotional Mailing Notice and Opt-Out Form (OSIS number required) by October 31. Note that if a student is age 18 or older, they must complete the form themself. To accommodate this process, please review the following information and take appropriate action:

  • ​​Share Opt-Out Form with Students/Families: You are encouraged to use your preferred electronic touch points (school newsletter, classroom reminders, etc.) to share the form by October 14.

Families who miss the first deadline can still submit the form by the final deadline of January 15, to stop receiving the promotional mailings after March 2023. Note that families cannot be directed to complete the form if they do not wish to opt-out.
