This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of LMACS’s intent to destroy the Special Education records of students who were no longer receiving Special Education services as of the end of the 2015-2016 school year. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. The purpose of destruction is to protect the student from improper and unauthorized disclosure of the confidential information contained within the file. After seven years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but they may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for Social Security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records in writing or in person at the following address: 67 Middle Street, Lowell, MA 01852 or call 978-656-3165
Request copies by October 1, 2023.
