Somers Public School District: Pupil Services
DESTRUCTION OF STUDENT RECORDS
In accordance with Section 7-109 of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Somers Public School System will destroy special education records, which have been inactive for a period of at least six years, based on actual or projected graduation date. Special education records include such information as Individualized Education Program (IEP) records, confidential data related to diagnostic medical information, psychological reports, and speech/language/hearing evaluation data.
By appointment, the special education records may be picked up in the Office of Pupil Services daily, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. until July 10, 2016. Due to confidentiality, records will not be released to anyone other than the student unless a signed consent for release of records form is provided. The destruction of inactive special education records will begin after July 11, 2016.
Please contact the Office of Pupil Services at (860) 749-2270 Ext. 2052 with any questions.
