Notice of Destruction of Special Education Records: Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students


In accordance with the state and federal regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this is public notice of Tucson Unified School District's intent to destroy personally identifiable information related to special education services for all students with DOB 1990 through 1998 who exited/withdrew from TUSD.

These records are scheduled for destruction the week of August 10, 2020.

The purpose for destruction of the above records is because it has been more than five (5) years since the student has received special education services at TUSD and they are no longer needed to provide educational services. Please be advised that the records may be needed by the student or guardian for social security benefits or other purposes.

TUSD may maintain a permanent record of a student's name, address and phone number, grades, attendance record, classes attended, grade level completed, and year completed.

The student or legal guardian may contact Exceptional Education Records at carmen.villarreal@tusd1.org or the address 5145 E. Fifth Street, Tucson AZ, 85711, to make an appointment to obtain copies of records. Please be advised that a picture ID is required in order for records to be released. If an eligible student or legal guardian does not respond to this public notice, TUSD will assume consent to destroy the entire special education record specific to the student.

COVID-19 Update for Parents/Guardians

If your child receives special education services, their IEP case carrier will contact you shortly after school resumes to discuss the individual needs of your child.

We're here to help!

Welcome to the Tucson Unified Exceptional Education Web page. We believe that parents are important contributors in the special education process and members of the IEP team. We are committed to working with you to develop plans and programs that are focused on your child's success!

It is important that you have the information that you need to be a member of your child's team. Below are several links where you can find information designed to help parents learn more about their child's disability, the special education progress, and their rights and responsibilities as a member of the special education team.

We encourage you to learn as much as you can. You can always talk with your child's teacher, counselor, the school psychologist, or principal. If you need more assistance, please contact the Tucson Unified Exceptional Education Ombudsperson or the Assistant Director of Exceptional Education for your child's school.
