The Garrett County Public Schools maintains student records as based on the administrative procedure, 474.212; Schedule for Retention and Disposition of Student Files. Student records of graduated or completed students are maintained at their respective high school for a period of six years, at which time they are forwarded to the Department of Pupil Services. Copies of records of students who transfer to another public educational institute are held for three years or until the age of 21. At that time, those records designated as permanent records will be retained in electronic format. Other records, unless there is an outstanding request for inspection of those records, will be disposed.
In accordance with this procedure and Maryland Special Education laws, it is the intent of the Garrett County Public Schools to dispose of the confidential special education records of any student who graduated in 2010 or transferred/withdrew during the 2009-2010 school year.
