Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the Rancho Santa Fe School District’s (“District”) website and for reviewing the District’s Privacy Policy. The District is committed to protecting your privacy when visiting our website and this Privacy Policy describes the ways our website gathers, uses, discloses, and manages your personally identifiable information (“PII”). 

PII is information that can be used to distinguish or trace a person’s identity. PII may include a person’s name or address, parent and family names and addresses, and geolocation data, among other data.


Use of PII

If you visit the District’s website and do nothing more than browse the site, read pages or download information, the site's operating system will automatically record some general information about your visit. This information includes:
Time Spent on Pages
Page Views

We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending the District email, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. When a user submits PII, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection and the District will seek consent from the appropriate party if consent for the use and disclosure of PII is required. If any third party is provided PII, such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to the District, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

In addition, the District is a public entity that is subject to the California Public Record Act. As such, please be advised that your personal information may be considered a public record under the California Public Record Act once you voluntarily provide it, and it may be subject to public disclosure and inspection if not otherwise protected by state or federal law.

Security of PII

Some of the District’s webpages (such as conference and training registration forms, information request forms, notification and alert request forms, and other forms) allow voluntary submission of PII. In those cases, every attempt will be made to protect your privacy. The District, however, cannot provide any guarantees as to the absolute security of your PII. 

External Sites

This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that the District is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. Please be aware when leaving our site and please read the privacy statements of websites that collect personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Tracking Technologies and Cookies

On certain District web pages, "cookies" are used to help with interactive usage of the site. A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your hard disk, usually to keep track of users while you are connected to that site. 

The cookies on the District’s pages do not collect sensitive personal information about you (such as your name or geolocation). Cookies only collect data about your interactions with the website during the timeframe that you are visiting. The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these web pages, without having to provide the same information repeatedly as you move from one page to another. Cookies also help the District understand how its users engage with its content, and the data gathered from cookies can be used to improve the website’s design and functionality. 

Cookies are temporary and are erased from your device once you close your web browser. 

To protect your privacy, be sure to close your browser completely after you have finished conducting business with a website that uses cookies. Many web browsers have settings that prompt you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.

Information from Email 

If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (email), the message will usually contain your return email address. If you include PII in your email because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. In other limited circumstances, we may be required by law to disclose information that you submit. Also, email is not necessarily secure against interception. Please send only information to help us process your request.


The District will periodically update and/or amend this Privacy Policy. Please periodically review this page for the most recent version of our Policy.

Pupil Records and Information 

This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website. For the District’s privacy policy concerning pupil records, please refer to District Board Policy 5010 - Pupil Records and Information – Confidentiality.
