Notification of Records Destruction

Cumberland County Public Schools maintains all permanent academic records in accordance with the State Board of Education’s regulations and guidelines, the Code of Virginia, and the Records Management Division of the Library of Virginia, which manages the retention and destruction of all public agency records. Certain records, including Special Education records, discipline records, health, and immunization records, have a retention period of five years after the student moves to another school district, graduates, or (for special education records) stops receiving special education services. CUCPS will shred all material that is no longer educationally useful at the end of the five-year period. If parents wish to review and/or have a copy of this data, they must contact the individual schools before the end of the retention period. This will constitute notice and no further notification will be given at the end of the five years.
