43.408. 1. Upon notification by the patrol of a child's disappearance, a school in which the child is currently or was previously enrolled shall mark the record of that child in such a manner that whenever a copy of or information regarding the record is requested, the school shall be alerted to the fact that the record is that of a missing child. The school shall immediately report to the missing persons unit of the highway patrol any request concerning marked records or knowledge as to the whereabouts of any missing child.
2. Within fourteen days after enrolling a transfer student, the elementary or secondary school personnel shall request directly from the student's previous school a certified copy of his record. The requesting school shall exercise due diligence in obtaining the copy of the record requested. Any elementary or secondary school requested to forward a copy of a transferring student's record to the new school shall comply unless the record has been marked pursuant to subsection 1 of this section, in which case the copy shall not be forwarded and the requested school shall notify the missing persons unit of the highway patrol of the request.
