8VAC20-150-20. Management of scholastic record.

A. Local education agencies shall manage the scholastic records of all students in compliance with applicable law, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, 20 USC § 1232g, 34 CFR 99; the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 20 USC §§ 1400-1485, 34 CFR 300; and §§ 2.2-3800 through 2.2-3809, 16.1-260, 16.1-305.1, 16.1-305.2, 22.1-3.1, 22.1-270, 22.1-271.2, 22.1-287, 22.1-287.01, 22.1-287.1, 22.1-288, 22.1-288.2, 22.1-289, 32.1-36.1 and 42.1-76 through 42.1-90.1 of the Code of Virginia.

B. Every notice of adjudication or conviction received by a local superintendent, and information contained in the notice, which is not a disciplinary record, shall be maintained by him and by any others to whom he disseminates it, separately from all other records concerning the student. However, if the school administrators or the school board takes disciplinary action against the student based upon an incident which formed the basis for the adjudication or conviction, the notice shall become a part of the student's disciplinary record. As used herein, "disciplinary record" means a record which is directly related to a student and any disciplinary action taken against that student for violation of school rules or policies occurring on school property or at school-sponsored events.
