Pittsfield: PHS announces destruction of records, summer hours
In accordance with State Regulations, all temporary cumulative school and health records for students who have graduated from Pittsfield High School during the 2009 school year will be destroyed after Friday, June 27.
State regulations require that student records be destroyed no later than five years after the student graduates. However, the high school transcript that includes the grades for the four years of high school is maintained for 60 years following graduation.
Any student who is interested in retrieving their records before destruction, should contact the School Counseling Office at (413) 499-9541 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. before June 27.
Students who receive services from the Special Education Department should contact the Special Education Office at (413) 499-9516 for an appointment to pick up any other records.
Registration for the 2014-2015 academic year is now taking place from 8 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at the Central Registration Office/Technology Department located in the lower level of the Mercer School Administration Center, 269 First St.
Bring proof of residence (utility bill/rental agreement), child’s birth certificate, immunization records, current physical and any previous school records.
In addition, the School Counseling Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in July and August for students seeking transcripts.
