Pittsfield: Taconic to destroy student records
In accordance with state regulations, all temporary cumulative school and health records for students who have graduated from or left Taconic High School during the 2008-2009 school year will be destroyed after July 1.
State regulations require that student records "shall be destroyed no later than five years after the student graduates." However, the high school transcript which includes the grades for the four years of high school is maintained by the high school for 60 years following graduation.
Any student who is interested in retrieving records before they are destroyed is asked to contact the Guidance Department at (413) 448-9602 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. prior to July 1.
Students who receive services from the Special Education Department may contact the Special Education Office at (413) 499-9516 for an appointment to pick up any additional records.
