Every year, Buckeye Union High School District destroys special education records that have been archived for five years.
This year, the district will begin destroying records from the 2014-15 school year in June, Exceptional Student Services Administrative Assistant Annette Brettner said in a press release announcing that parents, guardians and eligible students have the right to review and/or receive a copy of the records before they are destroyed.
The records include placements, referrals, evaluations and testing data, among others, Ms. Brettner stated. They are maintained for five fiscal years after a student’s final enrollment in a special education program. Final enrollment is defined as the last day a student is enrolled in a special education program and is no longer receiving services, she stated.
For more information or to request to review records, parents, guardians and eligible students may email Ms. Brettner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 623-386-9708 by Sunday, May 31.
