Notice of Destruction of Special Education Records

Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students: Special
Education records which have been collected by Bandera Independent School District
related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of
special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for a
period of five years after Special Education services have ended for the student while
enrolled in Bandera Independent School District. Special education services end when
the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her
educational program at age 22, or moves from the district.
This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Bandera
Independent School District's policy of destroying special education records upon the
expiration of five years from the date that services end. These records will be destroyed
in accordance with state and federal law unless the parent/guardian or adult student
notifies the Bandera Independent School District otherwise. After five years the records
are no longer useful to the district, but they may be useful to the parent/guardian or
former student in applying for Social Security benefits, rehabilitation services, college
entrance, etc.
The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request the records in writing to the
address below, prior to the five year period in which the records will be destroyed.
Records are destroyed on June 15th of each school year.
