Special Education : Student Records

Release of Records - Student records and associated confidentiality are governed by Board Policy FL (Legal) and FL (Local). Parents must provide a signed and dated written consent before the district can disclose personally identifiable information from the student's records to any agency, organization, or individual. No such release is required if the District is being asked to release records to the parent, another public or private school the student is transferring to or a student 18 years or older. From time to time, NISD may ask parents for records from other agencies, organizations, or individuals to better serve a student's special education needs. The same release form is used to obtain such records. (Possible fees may apply.)

Parents have the right to seek amendment of student's educational records: See FL (Legal) and FL (Local).

Special education records are destroyed in compliance with federal law five years after the cessation of special education services through either graduation or dismissal. A permanent record of the student's name, address, phone number, attendance, and Academic Achievement Record (AAR) may be maintained without time limitations.
