Legal Issues Related to Record Retention in Public School Districts

State law sets out the records retention schedules for all school district records, including those common personnel records that need to be retained. But reading, and applying, those schedules can prove challenging as you try to sort out what abbreviations like “AR” and “US” mean. Whether it is criminal history records, accommodation documents, hiring forms, or, most recently daily medical screenings, how are personnel administrators to know what to keep and for how long? This overview from experienced school attorney, Kelley Kalchthaler of the Walsh Gallegos Law Firm will cover state retention rules and retention periods for documents that are most often found in the human resources department.
