Special ed records to be destroyed

The Alabama Department of Education (ADE) has scheduled the destruction of certain special education records for May 3.

Records to be destroyed pertain to special education due process hearing requests filed between Jan. 1, 2006, and Dec. 31, 2006.

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 due process hearing filed at the ADE during this time frame, you may request the hearing records pertaining to your child (or yourself) by sending a signed, written authorization to release the records to Kathy Adams, 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 ADE receives a signed, written request for the due process hearing records, the hearing records will be destroyed on May 3.

If you have questions, please contact Ms. Adams by phone at 334-242-8114 or fax at 334-242-9192.
