Special Education records which have been collected by the Azle Independent School District (AISD) related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of Special Education services in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for a period of seven years after Special Education services have ended for the student. AISD maintains special education records for a period of seven years. Special Education services end when the student no longer is eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 22, or moves from the district.
This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of AISD's intent to destroy the Special Education records of students who were no longer receiving Special Education services as of the end of the 2015-2016 school year. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible adult student notifies the school district otherwise.
After seven 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 may request their records by email to Sheri Idell at email@example.com or by phone at 817-444-2851 on or before July 10, 2023.
