Special Education


Notice is hereby given that Carroll County Public Schools intends to destroy the special education records of all students who exited from special education services prior to and during the 2008-2009 school year.

In accordance with federal and state laws, Carroll County Public Schools is required to inform parents when personally identifiable information collected, maintained, or used to provide services under the IDEA is no longer needed to provide educational services to the child. Carroll County Public Schools may maintain a permanent record, without time limitation, of a students name, address and phone number, his/her grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed.

If you wish to maintain your childs special education records, please contact your childs last school of attendance before July 1, 2015 to claim the records before they are destroyed. Please note that certain records may be needed for social security benefits or other purposes. You must be the parent or legal guardian of the student or the student themselves to obtain the records and proper identification will be required.

If no student, parent or guardian responds to this public notice, the school district will assume consent to destroy the entire special education record specific to the student. Special education records not claimed by July 1, 2015 will be destroyed in accordance with state and federal regulations. If you have additional questions, you can contact the Carroll County Public Schools Office of Special Education at 410-751-3033.
