DESTRUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL RECORDS
Destruction of Special Education Confidential Records
Confidential Files must be kept for five years from the projected graduation
date. The parent/guardian/student must be notified in writing at his/her
last known address of the decision that information is no longer needed.
Before a confidential file is destroyed, a letter must be sent to the
parent/guardian/student informing him/her of the district’s intention to
destroy the Confidential Educational Records. A copy of the letter will be
placed in the confidential file. If the parent has not claimed the records
within 60 days from the date that the letter was sent, the confidential file
will be destroyed. The copy of the letter that was placed in the file will be
removed and the date that the file was shredded will be written at the
bottom of the letter. If the parent does claim the confidential file, he/she
will need to sign the letter at the bottom of the page. The special services
director will keep a separate file for each year that the records are
destroyed.
Special Services Director
DESTRUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL RECORDS
Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:
According to State and Federal guidelines, all confidential special education records may be
destroyed after a period of five (5) years upon the determination that the records are no longer
needed for educational purposes. Parents must be notified prior to the destruction of
confidential special education records and must have the opportunity to obtain the records
before destruction.
These confidential special education records include records of the child’s special education
testing, placement in special education classes, and IEP’s.
This letter is to notify you of the opportunity to obtain these confidential special education
records. If you do not respond to this notice within sixty (60) days of the date listed at the
bottom of this letter, the confidential records will be destroyed.
