Submitted by District 96

Special education records, collected by Kildeer Countryside Community Consolidated School District 96 related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for a period of seven years after special education services have ended for the student.

Special education services end when the student no longer is eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 22, or moves from the district.

This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Kildeer Countryside Community Consolidated School District 96 of the district's intent to destroy the special education records of students who were no longer receiving special education services as of the end of the 2005-2006 school year. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the district otherwise.

After seven years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but 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: Kildeer Countryside Consolidated School District 96, Student Services Department, 1050 Ivy Hall Lane, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089.
