 Notice of Destruction of Special Education Records

Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult)
Students: Special Education records which have been collected by
the Washington Public 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 five years after Special Education services have ended for the
student. Special Education services end when the student is no
longer eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her
educational program at age 22, or move from the district. 
This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students
of Washington Public School District's policy of destroying special education

records upon the expiration of five years from the date that services
end. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state and
federal law. After five 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 
Robin Schein, Special Education Director at 405-288-2353.
