State and federal guidelines require that all special education due process forms and records be destroyed within six years after a student leaves the special education or speech therapy program.
If your child is one of the students that received these services and it has been six years since they received these services you have the right to review and pick up your child’s due process records. The records will be available in the Lepanto Elementary Office on August 6, 2020 from 9:00-11:00 and again from 12:00-3:00. All records not picked up on this date will be destroyed on August 7, 2020.
THESE RECORDS ARE NOT YOUR CHILD’S PERMANENT SCHOOL RECORDS. THEY ARE ONLY SPECIAL EDUCATION AND DUE PROCESS FORMS AND RECORDS.
