2. mental and psychological problems of the student or the student's family;
3. sex behavior and attitudes;
4. illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating and demeaning behavior;
5. critical appraisals of other individuals with whom students have close family relationships;
6. legally recognized, privileged and analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians and ministers; or
7. Religious practices, affiliations or beliefs of the student or student’s parent;
8. income, (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such program).
It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principal, to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy.
It shall be the responsibility of the board to review and approve the evaluation and testing program.
