You have the right to look at all of your child’s school records. The school district must give you the opportunity to do this no later than 45 days after you ask for it. The school must allow you to look at the records right away when there is an IEP meeting planned or you are challenging a decision made by the school district.
You do not have a right to free copies of your child’s school records, but may get copies for a fee.
You have the right to ask for changes to your child’s school records if you disagree with what is in them (see our information on FERPA).
