"In accordance with the Berlin Public Schools procedures relative to Confidentiality of Education Records, as mandated by both state and federal regulations, students' confidential records should be destroyed when the data are no longer relevant for the provision of educational services to the student. Confidential records are, in no event, retained beyond six (6) years following a student's graduation, or the graduation of the class to which he/she belonged. Confidential records record students' special education testing and program; these are not regular school records.
Pursuant to these procedures, the confidential records of students who were, at any time, members of the graduating class of 2006 will be destroyed on June 30, 2012. Students have the right to inspect their records prior to destruction. Upon receipt of a written request, an appointment will be made for a staff member to explain and interpret all educational data. If desired, a copy can also be made available to the student. This does not include students' high school cumulative files. Please do not call the high school. Former students or their parents should send written requests to the Director of Pupil Personnel Services, Berlin Public Schools, 238 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT 06037, "only if the student had a special education file."
