The school maintains a scholastic record for each student, which is stored in a secure central location under the supervision of the principal. The scholastic record is limited to data needed by the school to assist the student in his/her personal, social, educational, and career development. You, as the parent, have the right to review and challenge the content of scholastic records in accordance with Management of Students' Scholastic Record in the Public Schools of Virginia. All records are maintained in a confidential manner and are released only with written permission of the parent (or the student 18 years or older) except to individuals and/or agencies approved by state and federal law. See Policy JO - Student Records for information.
Upon request, without prior written consent, a student's scholastic record shall be disclosed to parents, students and other authorized persons as permitted by state and federal law. Anyone other than the parent or guardian must have written permission from the parent or guardian (or the student 18 years or older) before receiving information from a student's scholastic record.
Authorized persons from the Child Protective Services and Foster Care Services, both agencies of the Division of Social Services, have the right to information from a child's school records, the right to interview the child alone or with a school staff member, and the right to remove a child from the school without the parent's or guardian's permission.
Transcript requests will be processed electronically through Parchment. Student records are kept at the high school for one year after graduation. Then they are sent to the School Administration Building.
