Military Opt-Out Letters 

Federal law requires the NYC Department of Education to provide: the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and DOE student email addresses of 11th and 12th grade students to military recruiters who request this information; and/or the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of 11th and 12th grade high school students to institutions of higher education that request this information. While we are committed to protecting the confidentiality of our students, we must comply with the law.

Parents of high school students under the age of 18 and students who are 18 years of age and older may opt-out of releasing information to the military and/or institutions of higher learning. For further information, please see Chancellor's Regulation A-825.
