• In accordance with the state and federal regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this is to inform you of our intent to destroy personally identifiable information related to special education services maintained in your student’s school special education records.  


    If you wish to maintain this information for your personal records, you need to notify us upon receipt of this notice; otherwise, the information will be destroyed on August 1, 2022.


    Please be advised that the records may be needed by the student or the parent(s) for social security benefits or other purposes.


    Records to be destroyed are as follows:

    Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)

    Evaluation Reports

    Test Protocols (Available for inspection only; no copy will be provided)

    Notification of Meetings

    Notices of Action

    Review of Existing Data Summaries

    All other personally identifiable information within the Special Education file*


    The reason for destruction of the above listed items is because they are no longer needed to provide educational services as it has been more than three (3) years since this individual has received special education services at Harrisonville-Cass R-IX School District.


    *The district may maintain a permanent record, without time limitation of a student’s name, address and phone number, his/her grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed.


    The school is required to maintain records for a minimum of three (3) years from the date the child no longer received special education and related services.
