Transcripts & Records Requests
School transcripts are available through the last school of attendance if graduation or attendance occurred within the last 3 years. For a copy of a school transcript, please contact the most recent school of attendance.
For information or records older than 3 years, please fill out the records request form. It will automatically send your information to the records department, where it will be processed usually within 2 business days.
3rd Parties please fax your signed request to 941-255-7574.
Verification of identity is required for any requests to be sent anywhere other than a college or university. A copy of legible identification can be attached to the electronic records request form.
Charlotte County Public Schools does not store copies of diplomas. The one you get at graduation is the only one there is. If you require proof of graduation for an employer/college select "Official Transcript" on the records request form.
If no one ever claimed your diploma at graduation, we do store the original unclaimed diplomas from the following schools only:
- The Academy 2013 - 2015
- Charlotte High 1996 - 2014
- Port Charlotte High 1984 - 2013
Requests for official GED copies and transcripts must be made to the Florida Department of Education.
If you went to the Academy and your diploma says Department of Education on it, transcript requests must be made to the Florida Department of Education.
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:
