Special Education Services

Leeds City Schools will destroy selected records pertaining to special education and related services which were provided at Leeds Elementary School, Leeds Middle School, and Leeds High School for students who exited the Special Education or Gifted Program in 2012.

These records are no longer needed to provide educational services and have been retained for a period of five years after the termination of the special education program for which they were used. These records will be properly disposed in a manner which ensures personally identifiable information is kept confidential in accordance with the Leeds City Schools Special Education Plan.

The parent(s) or student(s) of age may choose to collect the information or have it destroyed by Leeds City schools. These records are available to parents or students of age with proper identification.

If parent(s) or student(s) do not respond by contacting Amy Terry, Director of Student Services at (205) 699-5437 within ten (10) days of this advertisement, the aforementioned records will be destroyed without further notice.
