Student Media Release Form

By signing the back of the Student Emergency Card, I, the legal guardian give permission to the Howell Township School District to publish photos/images of my child on the district/school web site, Twitter, YouTube or other social news/media websites that promote the goals and objectives of the district.

In granting this permission, I understand that the Howell Township Public Schools may use photos/images/videos of my child for purposes such as celebrating achievements and publicizing education events, as deemed appropriate by the Superintendent of Schools.

I further understand that, my child may be named, or other personally identifiable information could be used with any photo/image/video.

I am signing the Student Photo Release Permission on the Student Emergency Card with the knowledge that any photos/images/videos/personally identifiable information posted on the Howell Township Website site can be downloaded and reprinted by various news organizations, including print, electronic and broadcast media, and I, therefore, release the Howell Township Public Schools from any liability arising from use of my child’s photos/images/videos/name in web postings.

Additionally, as previously advised by the local school district, I understand that there are potential dangers associated with the posting of personally identifiable information on a web site, since global access to the Internet does not allow for control of who may access such information.

I further understand that if I wish to rescind the agreement, I may do so at any time by sending a letter to the principal of my child’s school, who will immediately notify the respective individuals. The requested rescission will take effect upon district's receipt of the principal's notification.
