ST. CHARLES – Active temporary special education records of St. Charles Community Unit School District 303 from the 2017-18 school year have been digitized and stored electronically.

As a result, the paper copies of these temporary records for students who have active IEP’s are set to be destroyed, according to a news release from the district. These paper records will be destroyed after April 15, the release stated.

However, official copies of all destroyed paper records will be maintained electronically so that a parent or student can request a copy of his/her child’s special education record in accordance with the Illinois School Student Records Act, and relevant rules and regulations, the release stated.

Special education records may include: reports of psychological or social work evaluations, reports of multi-disciplinary planning conferences, reports of annual reviews, copies of individual educational programs or other verified information of clear relevance to the education of the student. If you have questions about the policy and procedures which govern District 303 student records, contact Patti Palagi, Director of Instructional Interventions at 331-228-6732.
