(a) A parent who believes that information in a record relating to the parent's child that is collected, maintained, or used by a district under this chapter is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the privacy or other rights of the child may request that the district amend the record.

(b) The district shall, within a reasonable period of time following receipt of the request, decide whether to amend the record.

(c) If a parent requests a hearing and the district determines that the information is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the privacy or other rights of the child, the district shall amend the record and inform the parent in writing of the amendment.

(d) If a parent requests a hearing and the district determines that the information is not inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of rights of the child, the district shall inform the parent that the parent may place with the record a statement commenting on the information, or stating any reason for disagreeing with the decision of the district. The parent's statement must be accompanied by a copy of the decision of the district.

(e) Any statement placed with a record under (d) of this section must accompany the record while the record or contested portion of the record is maintained by the district. If the record or contested portion of the record is disclosed by the district to any person, the statement must also be disclosed.
