OLD CABOT SCHOOL RECORDS SET FOR DESTRUCTION
State and federal guidelines allow public agencies to destroy special-education due-process forms and records when they are no longer needed to provide educational services to children.
The Cabot School District will keep records five years after the student graduates. Records that are not picked up will be destroyed on Aug. 16.
Guardians and former students can review or pick up a copy of their records if they received special-education services from Cabot Public Schools.
People 18 or older must pick up the records or sign a consent document allowing someone else to pick them up for them. If a former student has been declared incompetent or incapacitated, parents or guardians may review or pick up the records on behalf of that individual.
These records are available at the Special Programs Administrative Office at 802 N. Second St. in Cabot. Records that are not picked up will be destroyed on Aug. 16.
For more information, call the special-programs data clerk at 501-743-3543. These records do not include transcripts or grade reports.
