Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents and students over the age of 18 are provided certain rights regarding the student's education records. For a detailed outline of these rights, please visit the United States Department of Education Website at: http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html.
Parents or legal guardians have the right to review records maintained on their child; a right to the record and a right to contest information contained in the records. Requests for appointments to review or to contest student records should be made to the principal or her/his designees.
Copies of a student's record may be sent to a school outside of the Charlotte County Public School system upon receipt of an official written request, you can find a copy of our request form on our Transcript and Record Requests page. Such requests will be honored by the schools if attendance occurred within the previous 3 years. Parents and eligible students have a right to inspect records sent to other schools. Requests for records from all other sources require written permission of the parent/guardian.
School transcripts are available through the last school of attendance if graduation or attendance occurred within the last 3 years. After 3 years, records are forwarded to ICS for storage and are maintained indefinitely. For information relating to school transcripts, please contact the most recent school of attendance. For information older than 3 years, please visit the records request page.
