Important Notice for Parents - Special Education Records


Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students:
Special Education records which have been collected by the school district related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of Special Education in the district must be maintained under state and federal laws for a period of six years. After Special Education services cease, and the sixth year anniversary is reached, these records will be properly destroyed and disposed of. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district.

This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of the Jefferson-Morgan School District that these records will be destroyed in accordance with state and federal law unless the parent/guardian or adult student notifies the school district otherwise. After six years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but they may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for Social Security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc.

If you wish to maintain this information for your personal records and for any questions or more information, please contact Ms. Sara Bates, Director of Special Services, at 724-883-2310 extension 1228.
