Letter to the Editor
Time to claim your records
The Alabama State Department of Education (SDE) has scheduled the destruction of certain special education records for Feb. 11. Records to be destroyed pertain to special education due process hearing requests filed between Jan. 1, 2001 and Dec. 31, 2002.
If you are the parent of the 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 SDE during this timeframe, you may request the complaint records pertaining to your child (or yourself) by sending a written authorization to release the records to:
Alabama Department of Education

Telephone: (334) 242-8114
FAX: (334) 242-9192
TDD: (334) 242-8406
Your letter should include the student's name, current mailing address, and telephone number. Unless we receive a signed, written request for due process hearing records, the hearing records will be destroyed on Feb. 11.
