Notice of Destruction of Records


The East Williamson County Cooperative announces its intention to destroy special education records (including identification, evaluation, educational placement and the provision of services) that were developed to provide a Free and Appropriate Public Education for students in Coupland, Granger, Taylor, and Thrall Independent School Districts. Under federal law these records must be maintained for a period of 5 years and under local policy for 7 years after special education services have ended. Services end when a student is dismissed, graduates, completes their education program at age 22, or withdraws from the district.

Records will be destroyed beginning September 1, 2020 based on the following criteria:

-Students who graduated with a high school diploma or reached maximum age of 22 during or before the 2012-2013 school year.

-Students who were dismissed or exited Special Education during or before the 2012-2013 school year.

-Students who withdrew from an above named school district during or before the 2012-2013 school year.

A parent, legal guardian or student (18 years old or older) may request records, prior to destruction, by contacting the Special Education Records Office. Records may be useful to the parent/guardian or adult student when applying for higher education, Social Security benefits, agency services, etc. Records must be obtained in person at the EWCC office or in writing. You will be required to produce identification or provide verification data to acquire these records.
