Sped Destruction of Records

According to state and federal guidelines, special education records must be destroyed six years after the student is dismissed, graduated, found ineligible, or if the records are no longer useful in making educational decisions. The special education records of these students (2014-15 graduates) will be destroyed beginning August 25, 2021. You have the right to review and request copies of these records before they are destroyed. A student also has the right to review/copy these records if he/she is 18 years or older. Beginning August 11, 2021, if you do wish to see these records, please contact the Special Education Office in the Highland School District Central Office at 870-856-3275, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, to schedule a time to view the records or if you should have any questions regarding these records.
