Snowline School District Discusses Opt Out Forms For Military Recruiting – No Child Left Behind Act Discussed

Snowline School District Discusses Opt Out Forms For Military Recruiting – No Child Left Behind Act Discussed

Michael Urman

On October 9th 2007, the Snowline School District of Pinon Hills Phelan and Wrightwood held a meeting where the opt-out form for military recruiting was discussed. By law high schools are required to provide military recruiters with personal information about their students. The only way to prevent this disclosure is for parents or guardians to fill out and sign an opt-out form.

There was some confusion regarding a conflict between the Opt-Out clause in the No Child Left Behind Act and the state education code of California. The Federal Law says students must be allowed to opt out of the military recruitment list. The state education code says that you can opt out of all disclosures, but not just one.

Museum Goes on the Road for High Desert Students

SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors today approved funding for the San Bernardino County Museum’s “Museum on the Road” educational program. The program, which is funded by a $15,000 Community Foundation grant, is an educational outreach program for students and residents in the High Desert.

Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, who has made bringing a County Museum to the High Desert one of his goals, said the program is a good alternative for students unable to travel to the County Museum in Redlands. “Until we get a branch of the County Museum in the High Desert, this is a great option for our students,” he said. “The County Museum in Redlands is at least an hour’s drive away for the residents in my district and this program brings the education experience of the museum to children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience its cultural and educational exhibits.”

Language learning through your native tongue, such as learning English more fully can be accomplished by the language learning software at Euro Talk which can be found on the web at www.eurotalk.ie. But what about learning a foreign language- should you take the time to do so? The answer to this is an emphatic YES and Euro Talk can be with you every step of the way on the learning path.

The number one reason to learn a foreign language is so that you can communicate with other people who speak the language in question. This can include individuals you meet when you are travelling and also people you meet at home who speak more than one language. Learning to speak another language will make you welcomer when you travel and it shows a tremendous respect for a different culture than your own. People notice and are pleased when you make a concerted effort to speak a local language, even if you only learn a few words such as hello, goodbye, please and thank you.
