Protecting Your Child's Personal Information at School
Federal Trade Commission
Back to school--an annual ritual that includes buying new notebooks, packing lunches, coordinating transportation, and filling out forms: registration forms, health forms, permission slips, and emergency contact forms, to name a few. Many school forms require personal and, sometimes, sensitive information. In the wrong hands, this information can be used to commit fraud in your child's name. There are laws that help safeguard your child's and your family's personal information. This paper presents tips on how parents can protect their child's personal information at school.
