Photo/Video Release Agreement

I hereby grant Sycamore CUSD #427 and Spartan TV (collectively referred to as the “School District”) permission to use my likeness and voice in one or more photographs, video recordings, and audio recordings (collectively, “Recordings”) in any and all of the School District’s websites, social media sites, news releases, television productions, newsletters, athletic programs, performing art programs, school newsletters, publications or other media, whether now known or hereafter existing, controlled or authorized by the School District (“School District Media”), in perpetuity, and for any other use by the School District.

I agree that Sycamore CUSD #427 will own any and all rights of the resulting Recordings and that the School District has the right to use said Recordings. I understand that these Recordings may be edited and used in other School District Media. I understand and acknowledge that I do not have any right to inspect or approve any of the Recordings or the publication of said Recordings. I further understand and agree that the School District may publish said Recordings, may stream the Recordings in a live video format on School District Media, and may identify the students by name in the publication.

I understand and acknowledge that I will not receive any compensation for the Recordings or the publication of said Recordings, and will not make any monetary or other claim against the School District for the use of any of the Recordings. With respect to any student information and recordings taken as a result of this agreement, I hereby waive any and all protections afforded me and my student under the Illinois School Student Records Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. I agree to hold the School District, its Board of Directors, administrators, employees, agents, and assigns harmless against any and all claims, liability, loss, or damage, including attorney’s fees, caused or in any way arising out of the publication of the Recordings.

DISCLAIMER: The School District’s video recordings of student activities, including those that are livestreamed on School District Media, cannot be edited to limit or prevent the publication of individual students participating in these activities. If a student does not want the School District to publish video recordings of the student participating in these activities, the student must make a written request to the School District to withdraw from participating in the activity.

I also understand and agree that by signing below, I have read this Release Form and understand its contents. In the event that I wish to revoke my consent and permission granted by this Release Form, I must make a written request to the School District stating that it may no longer use my likeness in Recordings. I acknowledge that I may revoke consent at any time.
