Records which no longer serve a useful, business, educational or historical purpose shall be destroyed, subject to the limitation of applicable state statutes.

All District records, except pupil records, shall be kept for a period of not less than seven years unless a shorter period is fixed by the Board of Public Records and Forms under state law.

The District’s destruction of electronic records will comply with State Statues guiding the management of such records.

Prior to the destruction of any records, the historical society shall be notified at least sixty days in advance to determine if historical interest justifies preservation of such records. The historical society may, upon application, waive this notice.

No record may be destroyed at any time after the receipt of a request for inspection or copying of the record until after the request is granted or until at least 60 days after the date that the request is denied.
