Dear Parent(s),

We are working to improve conditions for learning in our schools. Students will learn more effectively in a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment. We would very much appreciate your help by completing the short survey attached. Your perceptions about your child’s school will help us identify what we are doing well, and what we need to do better.

If you have more than one child in this school, you may pick which one you want to think about when answering the questions. This survey is anonymous. No one will know which answers come from you, and it will not be possible to connect your answers to your child in any way.

The parent survey link can be found by clicking survey link:

If you have questions about completing this survey, please contact Dr. Rashida Askia at (615) 418-0581 or .

Thank you for your help,

Rashida Askia

Notice of Destruction of Records

Federal regulations at C.F.R. 80.42(b) provide that local education agencies receiving

federal funds are required to retain for three years, records necessary to show

compliance with federal and state mandates. Therefore, upon expiration of three years

after last expending federal funds on behalf of a child with a disability, local education

agencies may begin destruction of records.

Federal regulations at 34 C.F.R. 300.624 provide that local education agencies inform

parents when personally identifiable information collected, maintained, or used is no

longer needed to provide educational services to the child.

This notification is to inform parents/guardians of former students of Decatur

County School District's intent to destroy Special Education records of students who

are no longer receiving special education services. These records will be destroyed in

accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible adult student notifies

the school district otherwise. Records of special education students who graduated or

left the district through 2015 will be destroyed March 1, 2021. With proof of

identity, the parent/guardian or eligible adult student may request a copy of the

records in person or by mail: Decatur County Board of Education, 59 West Main St., Decaturville,

TN 38329.
