(1.9) Do I have the right to examine and/or get copies of my child’s educational records?

Federal regulations require school districts to comply with a parent’s request to inspect and review educational records without unnecessary delay and in no case more than 45 days after the request has been made. [34 C.F.R. Sec. 300.613.] However, state law gives parents the right to examine and receive copies of all school records within five business days from the date of an oral or written request. The school district may charge no more than the actual cost of reproducing the records. If this charge effectively prevents a parent from getting copies, the copies shall be provided at no cost. [34 C.F.R. Sec. 300.617; Cal. Ed. Code Sec. 56504.]
