Destruction of Special Education Records
In compliance with the Individual Disabilities Act (IDEA), The Georgia Records Act, and the Pierce County School System policy on destruction of data collected, maintained or used in the provision of a free and appropriate public education of students with disabilities in the Pierce County Schools, the Records Department announces its intention to destroy special education records during the month of July 2019.
Records on students who were enrolled in a special education program in the Pierce County School System who were born between January 1, 1992, and December 31, 1997, and were twenty-two (22) years of age as of May 24, 2019, are no longer needed for educational purposes.
The student or parent may need these records for Social Security or other reasons. If you, as a former special education student or a parent of a former special education student, wish to obtain these records prior to destruction, you should contact the Special Education Records Department, Pierce County Board of Education, P.O. Box 349,
