Records of individual students are accessible to the parents for
review by appointment within the school. Schools are not required to
provide copies of materials unless, for reasons such as great distance,
it is impossible for parents to inspect the records. Schools may charge a
fee if copies are made.
Parents have the right to request that the school correct records believed to be inaccurate or misleading.
If the school decides not to amend the records, the parent then
has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school
still decides not to amend the records, the parent has the right to
place a statement with the record commenting on the contested
information in the record.
Schools must have written permission from the parent before
releasing any information from a student record. There are certain
restrictions to that which are on file in the office.

At the end of every year students at Derry Village take part in a
field day. Field
day encompasses regular physical activity and games, with classroom
research and presentations. Included are the school wide barbecue day
and cultural arts presentation. This is a fun time for students at Derry
Village and a great way to celebrate our school year.
As part of the educational program, occasional field trips are
planned to promote and enrich experiences for students. Trips are
adequately supervised by teachers and parent chaperones. All students
attending field trips are required to bring a permission slip signed by
parents in order to participate. Parents are not allowed to transport
their child to or from the field trip destination unless an emergency
situation arises and arrangements have been approved by the building
administrator. If your child has any pervasive health concerns, parents
are encouraged to accompany their child on field trips.
When you are on a field trip, you represent the school and you
are expected to follow all school wide expectations of respect,
responsibility and safety. You are expected to be a good representative
of Derry Village school and behave accordingly.
Students learn from the example set for them by adult role
models, both in the school and beyond the school walls. On field trips,
chaperones will work with the school staff to reinforce appropriate
behavior. To that end, the dress, conduct, language and interpersonal
relationships of chaperones will contribute to the trip atmosphere.
Thank you for volunteering and we appreciate all of your help.
The SNAP (School Nutrition Accountability Program) program has
been in effect for several years now. This program provides each student
with an identification card, and allows parents to deposit money in an
account so that their children can receive their lunch or breakfast.
We also offer free and reduced meals for those who qualify
according to the government requirements. Everyone receives these forms
during the first week of the school year. If you choose to apply for
this assistance, the food service program will contact you if you
qualify. The monthly lunch menu can be accessed from the Derry Cooperative School District webpage http://www.sau10.org/departments/food-service/menus/lunch

Free Appropriate Public Education
FAPE (free appropriate public education) is one of the hallmarks
of IDEA - that American children, regardless of their disability, are
entitled to a public school education.
Expect the following PTA fundraisers during the year. Fall,
Holiday, Spring. We ask you to support the school through these
fundraisers. The money raised helps the PTA purchase items for the
school from which all students will benefit. For example, transportation
for field trips, playground equipment, cultural arts,
artist-in-residence programs, etc.
