In accordance with the state and federal regulations implementing the individuals with
Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this is to inform the public of our intent to destroy personally identifiable information related to special education services.
The Simpson County School District would like to make Parents/Guardians, Former Students, and Eligible (Adult) Students aware that Special Education records of students who graduated in the 2013 and 2014 school years will be disposed of starting July 10, 2019. The District is required to maintain records for a minimum of three (3) years from the date the child leaves the school district.
Special Education records collected by the Simpson County School District, relates to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of Special Education in the district. Special Education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates or completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district.
This notification is solely to provide awareness to the students who graduated in May 2013 and May 2014 or who left school during that year. If no student, parent or guardian responds to this public notice, the school district will assume consent to destroy all Special Educations records specific to the student after July 10, 2019.
The District may maintain a permanent record, without limitation, of a student’s name, address, phone number, his/her grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed.
Please be advised that the records may be needed by the student or parent(s) for social security benefits or other purposes.
