Under state and federal law, records kept in Special Education files are subject to regulations regarding those special Education records that are no longer needed to provide educational services to a student. Federal law requires that such records be retained for a period of five years from the end of the activity reflected in the records. The Weld RE-4 School District Exceptional Student Services Department is notifying the public that all Special Education records maintained in the Special Education file before January 2011 will be purged. On or before April 1, 2016 you have the right to:
1. Notify the Weld RE-4 School District Exceptional Student Services Department in writing that you want to receive a copy of all Special Education records maintained in the Special Education file before the file is purged.
2. Request, in writing, that all "personally identifiable" Special Education records be "destroyed" after the federally required retention period. Even when a parent has requested destruction of records, the School District may permanently retain a record of the student's name, address, telephone number, grades, attendance records, classes attended, grade levels completed and year of completion.
