The Special Education Department of Anderson County is preparing to destroy information that is maintained to provide educational services to students with disabilities. Information includes referral data, notice/consent documents, assessment reports and supporting data, ARD Committee deliberations and the IEP.
Records are destroyed after being maintained for 7 years after the student leaves the district. Reasons the student leaves a district may include: graduation; dismissal from special education; dropping out; and moving to another district.
Record destruction will occur annually in July.
Parents of students with disabilities or adult persons (age 18 and over) with disabilities whose records will be destroyed may notify Anderson County Special Education Co-Op at (903) 876-3685 prior to June 15th, should they want to pick up records.
