The Special Education Department of Anderson County is preparing to destroy personally identifiable information that is maintained to provide educational services to students with disabilities. This information includes referral data, notice/consent documents, assessment reports and supporting data, ARD Committee deliberations and the IEP. Reasons for leaving include: graduation; dismissal from special education; dropping out; and moving from the district.
Records are destroyed after being maintained for 7 years after the student leaves the 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.
