- To the general public, the final results of a disciplinary proceeding, if the school determines the student is in alleged perpetrator of a crime of violence or non-forcible sex offense and the student has committed a violation of the school’s rules or policies with respect to the allegations made against him or her.
- To parents of a student regarding the student’s violation of any Federal, State or local law, or of any rule or policy of the school, governing the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance if the school determines the student committed a disciplinary violation and the student is under the age of 21.
- The disclosure concerns sex offenders and other individuals required to register under section the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994.
