385.015. Assignment of numbers for identification of records of pupils in public schools

1. A school district shall assign to each pupil enrolled in a public school in the district a number which identifies the records of the pupil for use by the Department of Education. If a parent or legal guardian of a pupil elects to provide the social security number of the pupil, the identification number assigned to a pupil must be the pupil's social security number. If a parent or legal guardian of a pupil elects not to provide the pupil's social security number, the school district shall assign to the pupil an alternate number which uniquely identifies the records of the pupil.

2. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, a pupil must be assigned only one identification number which identifies the pupil's records for the duration of his or her enrollment in the public school system in Nevada for use by the Department of Education. If a pupil's identification number is his or her social security number, a parent or legal guardian of the pupil may object to the continued use of the pupil's social security number and request that the school district assign an alternate number which uniquely identifies the records of the pupil.

3. The provisions of this section do not:

(a) Require a parent or legal guardian of a pupil to provide the social security number of the pupil.

(b) Prohibit a school district from establishing or maintaining a separate system for identifying pupils for use by the school district.
