Record Keeping Policies

The SASD recognizes the need to protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information in the education records of students. TheSASD Records Policy meets the requirements of the State Board of Education and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, a federal law.

All student records are kept in locked files in the school where that student attends.

No information from student records will be made available to outside sources without prior written consent of parent or eligible student. An eligible student is a student who has reached 18 years of age. Written consent is not required when records are forwarded to other educational institutions.

Parents and/or eligible students have the right to inspect or review the student’s records by appointment, after a request is received. Parents or eligible students have the right to request the record be amended if they believe that information contained in the record is inaccurate or misleading or violates privacy.
