NOTIFICATION OF DESTRUCTION OF SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENT RECORDS
Notice is hereby given that Carroll County Public Schools intends to destroy the Special Education records, including the Part C Infants/Toddler and Part B Preschool Special Education records, of all students who exited from an IEP or IFSP prior to and during the 2015-2016 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 and supports to the child. Carroll County Public Schools 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. 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 record and proper identification will be required. If the student is 18 years of age or older, there needs to be documentation that the student releases the information to his or her parents.
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. All Special Education records not claimed by July 1, 2022, will be destroyed in accordance with state and federal regulations.
If you wish to maintain your child’s IEP records, please contact your last school of attendance before July 1, 2022. If you wish to maintain your child's IFSP/preschool records, please contact the Birth to Kindergarten office at 410-876-4437.
If you have additional questions related to the destruction of IEP records, please contact 410-751-3033.
