If you are the parent or guardian of a current student, you can request copies of school records for your child by contacting the principal of the school your child attends. You should get the records within 45 days of your request. Teachers and other school staff members must have a specific educational reason to request a student's records.
Use School Finder to find contact information for your school.
If a non-custodial parent requests access to the child's student records, the principal will notify the custodial parent, guardian, or institution where the child lives. The principal will give the name of the person making the request and the date of the request.
The custodial parent has 45 days to tell the school about any legal documents that say the non-custodial parent can't see the records.
If there are no legal documents preventing it, the non-custodial parent will get the documents after the 45 day period.
Student Record Change
Custodial parents may request a change to a student's educational record to correct information that is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of the student's privacy. Put the request in writing and address it to the principal or the head of the school's records office.
You should get a response within 15 school days.
Transfer of School Records
Schools do not need a parent's permission to give student records to another school or educational institution. The school will try to notify the parent when it releases records.
