Requesting Exceptional Education Records



In keeping with the Tennessee Department of Education Records Retention Schedule (Reference number CTAS-2056) the Monroe County Schools’ Psychological Services Office Staff will begin to review and purge all special education records of all special educations students who were born between January 1, 1997, and December 31, 1997. The District will maintain the files of all current and former students who were born on or after January 1, 1998, until those individuals reach the age of 25 years. Thereafter, special education records will be similarly reviewed each school year. This notice of records to be purged applies only to Monroe County Schools’ Special Education Records.


The official administrative records that constitute the minimum personal identifying data necessary for the operation of the education system (such as student’s name, parent’s or guardian’s name, student’s birth date, academic work completed, level of achievement, including grades and standardized achievement test scores and attendance data) will be maintained at the student's high school or Central Office.


Consequently, the District invites all former students or their parents to request their records before they are purged. The purging of all special education records of students who were born between January 1, 1997, and December 31, 1997, will begin in December 2022. Therefore, if you wish to obtain these records, please send a request that includes all of the information listed below before December 1, 2022. The request should be forwarded to:
