Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook Addendum


The following items are required notifications not previously included in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook that you receive each year in your child’s agenda book.


Student Surveys (Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment):


Hampton City Schools surveys students about school climate and other influences on their learning experiences.  As a rule, the school division does not conduct surveys about sensitive topics such as religious or political preferences, the use of alcohol or other drugs, or illegal conduct.  If any survey which contains such topics is planned, parents will receive written notice in advance and must give permission prior to a student’s participation.


Sex Offenders and Crimes Against Minors Registry:


The Virginia State Police is tasked with maintaining the Sex Offenders and Crimes Against Minors Registry.  The registry, including the Public Notification Database, is based on the Virginia General Assembly's decision to facilitate access to publicly-available information about persons convicted of specified violent and sexual offenses.  This searchable database may be accessed through the Hampton City Schools website (visit the Department of Student Services page to access the registry), or go to:


If additional information is needed regarding either of these items above, or any information in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook, please contact the Office of Student Services at 727-2135.
