Notice to Exiting Students Regarding Destruction of Special Education Records
Special Education records, which have been collected by the Somerset Area School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of the Special Education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal law for a period of seven years after Special Education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student no longer is eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. Student files will be destroyed ten years after the student exits the Somerset Area School District
After ten (10) 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, who reached 18 years of age, may request a copy of the records in writing or in person at the following address.
