HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardIs your daughter in a private or public school?
What is the purpose of you wanting to obtain them?Are you her legal parent/guardian? In other words, if you are a single parent do you have court ordered Legal custody?
HelloThank you. In these type of situations, the request to transfer requires the school to forward the transcripts to the next desired school. They do not release them to the parent. I suggest you talk to the enrollment counselor at the new school and once he is enrolled, they will make the request for the transfer.
Once that is complete, you have a right to request a copy of the transcripts.
Under federal law every parent has a right to Review the school records.
And I misspoke, they must allow you review but do not have to allow copies
The request to review should be put into writing and they have 45 days to contact you about a mutual convenient time to review the records.
Hello CharlyAs I stated, I do not participate in phone calls this site offers. But I can provide you information to the questions you have here.What is the question in regard to your latest post?
HelloThe law statesSECTION 59-63-250. Transfer of pupils.The board or a designated administrator may transfer a pupil to another school in lieu of suspension or expulsion but only after a conference or hearing with the parents or legal guardian. The parents or legal guardian may appeal a transfer made by an administrator to the board.
SECTION 59-63-210. Grounds for which trustees may expel, suspend, or transfer pupils; petition for readmission; expulsion, suspension, or transfer.(A) Any district board of trustees may authorize or order the expulsion, suspension, or transfer of any pupil for the commission of any crime, gross immorality, gross misbehavior, persistent disobedience, or for violation of written rules and promulgated regulations established by the district board, county board, or the State Board of Education, or when the presence of the pupil is detrimental to the best interest of the school. Each expelled pupil has the right to petition for readmission for the succeeding school year. Expulsion or suspension must be construed to prohibit a pupil from entering the school or school grounds, except for a prearranged conference with an administrator, attending any day or night school functions, or riding a school bus. The provisions of this section do not preclude enrollment and attendance in any adult or night school.
