ATTENTION SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS AND PARENTS
This notice is addressed to all former Special Education students and parents that were ever enrolled in the Hart County School System.
Data collected and maintained on you or your child is no longer needed to provide educational services once the special education student reaches the age of 21. You have the right to receive copies of all information.
The school system will retain the permanent record that includes the student's name, address, telephone number, his/her grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed. This information will be maintained without time limit.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Sandra Adams, Special Education Director, at 706-376-4209. Immediately after the student's 21st birthday, all special education records will be destroyed if the Special Education office is not notified.
