  • On Monday, July 8, 2019, parents began electronically updating student privacy options through the student information tile in BCPS One. This form will no longer be printed with the Annual Student Review Form (formerly the Emergency Contact Form). School administrators and teachers can view selected privacy options for individual students by generating a Privacy Preferences Report in the BCPS One Student Information System (SIS) or by accessing the Picture Attendance screen in the BCPS One SIS.
