Jefferson County Schools 509J wants to inform parents/guardians and former Special Education students that on July 1, 2024, the district will destroy the records of students who have reached the age of 21 and ended/exited Special Education Services between 1980-2017. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes their educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. 

Special Education records include identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, or other related services made available as determined through the Individual Education Plan process. 

These records are no longer needed by the district but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student who may apply for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc.

If a student wants to obtain their record, they need to sign a consent for release of information and provide photo identification. The record can be obtained at the Support Services Building office in person. All unclaimed records will be destroyed on July 1, 2024. The office is located at 445 SE Buff St, Madras, OR 97741.

For additional information, please contact the Student Services Office at 541.475.6192
