Records Retention and Disposal

Records Retention Schedule/Disposal of Special Education Records 

Effective: April 2018

The school maintains various student records, some of which must be permanently maintained as mandatory permanent records, while others that are no longer needed or useful may be disposed pursuant to law. Special education records fall under this category and are disposed of according to district policy.

OAC 3301-51-04 (O) (1) mandates that, “The public agency must inform parents when personally identifiable information collected, maintained, or used under this part is no longer needed to provide educational services to the child.” Please be aware that special education records may be needed for social security benefits or for other purposes in the future.

This posting serves as notice that the district does dispose of special education records per district policy. If you desire to have these records or have any questions, please contact the Student Services Office at 419-678-4821 ext 5116.
