Transfer of Student Records to Other Schools

1.  Receive request for records from another school.

2.  Check for IEP in the planner, and add it to the package leaving from the school.

3.  Check the outgoing files for all inclusions and elements required. (see Learner Records Policy)

4.  Pull records, and photocopy PSR for our own school records. 

5.  Photocopied files are kept in the file boxes in the SENT file.

6.  Date they were sent:  written on the photocopy files.

7.  If the request is from another source (not a school), then approval from the school privacy officer  must be sought before sending them.  This will ensure we are upholding standards set out by the Personal Information Privacy Act of 2004 (PIPA).
