[SDCPJ] Recruiter opt-out victory in San Diego Unified, more help needed

In Sept. 2009, parents and students from the Education Not Arms Coalition went to the San Diego school board to protest enrollment forms that were premarked to grant the school district permission to give student contact information to military recruiters.
 
Because of our protest, a special letter was sent home with students to clarify how to block recruiters' access to student information. The district also promised to revise the enrollment forms in 2010 to make the recruiter opt-out process clearer.
 
The Ed Not Arms Coalition recently heard reports from students indicating that the 2010 enrollment form has, in fact, been revised (see item #28 in the attached enrollment form for incoming new students). This is another victory for the coalition!
 
A similar "enrollment confirmation" form is used for students who have previously attended school in the district. What we don't know is whether students in San Diego high schools who opted out the previous year are receiving their enrollment confirmation forms with the opt-out box already checked, or if the district is forcing them to keep opting out every year (which violates federal law). Please help us find out.
 
If you are a student in 10th grade or higher AND you opted out last year, or if you know such a student, please let us know whether or not the student enrollment confirmation form this year arrived with the opt-out box already checked (see #28 on the form) .
 
Thanks.
