The upcoming destruction process, according to the district, will also include records that are more than four years old of students who no longer attend special education programs in YUHSD.
Families and students age 18 and older may retrieve their records by making an appointment with Student Services Office Specialist Patty Rosales, available by phone at (928) 502-6780.
