SPECIAL EDUCATION RECORDS NOTICE: Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students: Special Education records which have been collected by the Athens City 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. Special Education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Athens City School District's policy of destroying special education records upon the expiration of five years from the date the services end.
