All requests must be submitted in writing. Proper government-issued picture identification is required. If you have changed your name since attending our schools, you must show legal documentation of both name changes, other than through marriage. Acceptable legal documentation of name changes can be a copy of a Naturalization Certificate (front and back sides) or a Court document stating the name changed, or a statement from the Social Security Office confirming to the use of both names.
Our special education teachers are required to have a bachelor’s degree and a state-issued certification or license in special education along with an autism certificate. They are well trained in various teaching practices and strategies to better serve the students. Their mission is helping students access the curriculum, to work on appropriate behaviors and to learn social skills to name a few practices.
All responses to records requests are mailed. We do not fax records. Records may be picked up, by appointment only, and you must show valid government-issued picture identification. Please, no walk-ins without appointment. Processing time for records requests is approximately one week.
Adults (former students) must request their own transcripts. In order to comply with the privacy laws, proof of identification is required.
