Notice of Destruction of Special Education Records

 Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students:

Individual Student Special Education records which have been collected by the Walpole Public Schools 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 to 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 22, or moves from the district.

This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of The Walpole Public Schools intent to destroy the Special Education records effective September 9, 2022 of students who are no longer receiving Special Education services and whose birth year is 1994 or 1995.  These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise.

After five to 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 contact the Student Services Office to make arrangements to pick up their records by providing the student's name, date of birth and contact phone number:
