Release of Student Records

The release of information regarding student records is governed by The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974. To be in compliance with FERPA, the school district does not disclose any information in education records, without prior written consent of the parent or eligible student. An eligible student is a student 18 years of age or older and who is not otherwise under a legal disability. Dates of attendance and graduation dates may be released without written consent.

Students may request a copy of their transcript from the SHS Records Office. The transcript is the official record of a high school education, containing the student's classes, grades, date of graduation, final class rank, and final GPA.
