(a) Each district shall obtain written consent of a parent before disclosing, for any purpose other than meeting the requirements of this chapter, personally identifiable information relating to that parent's child, that is collected, maintained, or used by the district under this chapter, to any person other than

(1) a school official, including a teacher or a contract service provider, who has a legitimate educational interest;

(2) an official of a school or school system to which the student transfers enrollment or intends to enroll, upon condition that a parent be notified of the disclosure, offered a copy of the record, and notified of the parent's right to request amendment of the record under 4 AAC 52.520; and

(3) a representative of the federal comptroller general, United States Department of Education, or the department.

(c) If a child with a disability transfers to another school, each district shall transmit with other student records, including the child's current IEP, all statements of current and previous disciplinary action regarding the child, to the same extent that disciplinary information would be included in and transmitted with the records of a child without a disability.

(d) Statements of disciplinary action must include a description of

(2) the action taken; and

(3) any other information that is relevant to the safety of the child and other individuals involved with the child.
