Notice is hereby given that Catalina Foothills School District intends to destroy the records of all students who qualified for its special education program after four years of having been dismissed from services, graduated, or transferred out. In accordance with federal and state laws, special education records are maintained for four years after the student exits the special education program and/or the activities for which special education funds were used. A permanent record of the student’s name, address, phone number, grades, attendance record and year completed is maintained in perpetuity.

The purpose of destruction is to protect the student from improper and unauthorized disclosure of the confidential information contained within the file. Please note that certain records may be needed by the student, parent or guardian for social security benefits or other purposes.

A copy of any information contained in the special education record can be provided to the parent/guardian or eligible student once the district receives a written request. If no parent/guardian or eligible student responds to this public notice, the school district will assume consent to destroy the entire special education record specific to the student.

If you do not understand this notice or are in need of interpretation, please contact the District Office at 520-209-8081.
