BACK TO SCHOOL? DON'T BE A TARGET FOR THE MILITARY!

Under the provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act, schools receiving federal funds MUST release students' personal information to military recruiters if they are to continue to receive federal funds.

Please share this information with the young people in your lives:

Opt-Out Facts:
* Students must opt-out EVERY YEAR.
* Traditionally, the deadline for opting-out for the year is October 1.
* Students do NOT require parental or guardian consent to opt-out.
* EVERY high school students' personal information is being released to military recruiters -- not just that of juniors' and seniors'!
* Young women are NOT exempt from this provision.
