BACKGROUND: At the November 9, 2010 board meeting, Board Member John de Beck proposed a new policy regarding recruitment activities in San Diego Unified schools. The proposed policy statement was agendized as a first reading and information only. Staff has reviewed the policy and has determined that this policy fulfills the stated objectives of ensuring that district students have balanced access to information about the range of education and career options available to them and enhances the ability of parents and legal guardians to make affirmative choices regarding the release of confidential student information. Specifically, this policy directs that recruiters offering student information on careers and post-secondary educational opportunities have equal access to students as compared to that of military recruiters; and restricts all recruiting organizations to no more than two site visits per year. Additionally, schools which allow administration of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) must select ASVAB release option 8, which prohibits the automatic release of student information to local recruiters. Election of option 8 permits school counselors and students to make use of the aptitude data; and does not limit the student's ability to use their ASVAB scores if they elect to explore military enlistment.
