Student Records

Parents who wish to review their child’s school records may contact the counselor for an appointment. Both permanent and cumulative records are housed in the guidance office.

The basic information contained on file includes: grades, achievement and ability test results, reading records, progress reports, as well as miscellaneous outstanding achievement or other significant information deemed important to help students in career decision making.

A typical record review session would involve discussing the educational implications of the information as previously mentioned. Although levels of ability and achievement may be discussed, a review of actual test scores on the tests measuring mental ability (I.Q. scores) are not included as part of the record review. Such scores will only be reviewed with a parent or legal guardian present.

Health records are maintained by the school nurse. Parents are encouraged to share any information with the school nurse that may be helpful in updating current health records.
