186:68 Military Recruiters; Access; Reporting.

I. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, all public high schools and all institutions within the state university system, and all private high schools, colleges, and universities which receive state funds shall offer the same on-campus recruiting opportunities to representatives of state or United States armed services as they offer to nonmilitary recruiters.

II.(a) A public school subject to this section shall provide notice to each student and to the parent or guardian of each student enrolled at the school that, in accordance with federal law, the student or the parent or guardian of the student may request that the student’s name, address, and telephone number not be released to military recruiters.

(b) The notice described under paragraph (a) shall:

(1) Be included in a clear and conspicuous manner and in the same size type as the other statements on the card requesting emergency contact information that is distributed by the school to each student or parent or guardian of the student; and

(2) Request that the student or the parent or guardian of the student indicate if the student’s name, address, and telephone number is not to be released to military recruiters by checking the box “Do not release contact information.”

III.(a) In this paragraph, “ASVAB” means the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.

(b) Each public school that administers the ASVAB shall choose “option 8” as the score reporting option for military recruiter contact to prohibit the general release of any student information to military recruiters.

(c) Each public school that administers the ASVAB shall:

(1) Send a written notice to the ASVAB representative coordinating the school’s administration of the ASVAB of the requirement set forth in subparagraph (b); and
