Published 1:10pm Wednesday, February 6, 2013

The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) has scheduled the destruction of certain special education records for March 1. Records to be destroyed pertain to special education complaints filed between Jan. 2, 2006, and Feb. 28, 2008. Records to be destroyed also pertain to special education mediation records maintained between Jan. 2, 2006, and Feb. 28, 2008.

If you are the parent of a child (or a student aged 19 or older, or a former student aged 19 or older) involved in a special education complaint or a special education mediation, with records maintained at the ALSDE during this timeframe, you may request the complaint records or mediation records pertaining to your child (or yourself) by sending a signed, written authorization to release the records to: Camilla Gibson, Alabama Department of Education, Special Education Services, P.O. Box 302101, Montgomery, AL 36130-2101.

Your letter should include the student’s name, current mailing address and telephone number. Unless we receive a signed, written request for the complaint records or mediation records, the records will be destroyed on March 1, 2013.
