Q: If a public school board takes disciplinary action against a student during an executive session hearing, is the studentís right of privacy under any state or federal law violated if the board shows in its minutes for that executive session the action taken and the name of the student?

A: Yes. However, the public school board may record in the minutes the final student disciplinary action taken by the school board in executive session without disclosing personal identifiable information, e. g., a studentís name, by using a non-identifying student number.
