Notice for destruction of SPE records

May 10, 2017

According to the Alabama Administrative Code r.290-8-9-8 (2) (h) an education agency must retain a copy of records for five (5) years after the termination of the special education program for which they were used. At the end of the five (5) year retention period, the education agency shall provide written notice to parents to inform them that the special education records are no longer needed and will be destroyed.

This serves as notice that special education records of students who were born in 1991, or students who have not been enrolled in our system since May 30, 2012, will be destroyed. A legal guardian, or former student if age 19 or older, must pick up the records at the central office located at 1210 21st Avenue, Tuscaloosa, AL, or notify the Tuscaloosa City Schools, within 10 days from the date of this publication.
