How do parents look at their student's records?

Ask! Schools will make an appointment for parents to review their child's educational records. Schools have forty-five (45) days to schedule the appointment, but most schools act immediately.

  • Parents have a right to an explanation of any forms, test scores, or educational language that they don't understand. If the principal or the appropriate school staff member is not available to answer questions, the parents should schedule a meeting in advance at a more appropriate time.
  • When asking to see their child's records, parents with limited English proficiency may ask the school to provide a translator for the meeting.
