JO - Education Records**

Code: JO
Adopted: Unknown
Re-adopted: 8/13/97; 10/11/17
Original Codes: 7600, 7610

Education records are those records maintained by the district that are directly related to a student.

The primary reason for the keeping and maintaining of education records for students is to help the individual student in his/her educational development by providing pertinent information for the student, his/her teachers and his/her parents.  These records also serve as an important source of information to assist students in seeking productive employment and/or post-high school education.

It is the policy of the district to keep education records for students to conform with state and federal laws and regulations.

Information recorded on official education records should be carefully selected, accurate and verifiable, and should have a direct and significant bearing upon the student’s educational development.

The district will develop regulations for the maintenance, access and release of education records as well as for preserving confidentiality and for challenging the content of those records.

Records requested by another school district to determine a student’s appropriate placement may not be withheld.

The district shall give full rights to education records to either parent, unless the district has been provided legal evidence that specifically revokes these rights.  However, once the student reaches age 18 those rights transfer to the student.

A copy of this policy and administrative regulations shall be made available upon request by parents and students 18 years or older or emancipated.
