Records requests for students transferring from LCPS to another school district should be directed to the Registrar or Attendance Secretary at the last LCPS school attended. Contact information can be found on each school’s webpage.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
(FERPA) gives parents, or student's age 18 or older (eligible students), the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. LCPS Policy 8630 includes the right to obtain a copy of the records. According to LCPS Reguation 4020, annually the school division shall provide free of charge one copy of a student’s scholastic record when it is 25 pages or less. Scholastic records in excess of 25 pages shall be charged at $0.10 per page beyond the initial 25 pages. All additional copies requested will be charged $0.10 per page for all pages. To submit a FERPA request:
- Parents or eligible students who wish to inspect and review or receive a copy of their student's records, complete the LCPS FERPA Request Form and submit it to the school administrator.
- Parents or eligible students who wish to release or exchange information from their child's record to a third party such as an attorney or advocate, complete the LCPS Release/Exchange of Information Form and submit it to the school administrator.
- An Inspect and Review meeting may be scheduled with the Principal or designee.
- Copies may be provided at the meeting, or available in a reasonable amount of time.
FERPA also gives parents and eligible students the right to seek to amend the student's education records. To initiate this process, fill out the LCPS Student Records Amendment Form and submit to the school administrator.
