NOTICE OF DESTRUCTION OF STUDENT SPECIAL EDUCATION RECORDS
In accordance with the state and federal regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this is to inform you of our intent to destroy personally identifiable information related to special education services maintained in school special education records.
If you wish to maintain this information for your personal records, you need to notify us upon receipt of this notice; otherwise, the information will be destroyed on August 1, 2013.
Please be advised that the records may be needed by the student or the parent(s) for social security benefits or other purposes.
Records to be destroyed are as follows:
Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
Notifications of Meetings
Notices of Actions
Review of Existing Data Summaries
All other personally identifiable information within the Special Education file*
The reason for destruction of the above listed items is because they are no longer needed to provide educational services as it has been more than three (3) years since this individual has received special education services at Ava R-I Schools.
*The district may maintain a permanent record, without time limitation, of a student’s name, address and phone number, his/her grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed.
The school is required to maintain records for a minimum of three (3) years from the date the child no longer received special education and related services.
