Transfer of Records

Transfer of Records to Another Illinois Public School

Notice of a student’s transfer to another school should be given to the building principal in advance so that the records can be prepared to be sent to the new school. According to the Illinois School Student Records Act of 1975 as amended, student records must be transferred to another school in which the student has enrolled or intends to enroll upon request of the records custodian of the other school. Before moving or transferring to a new school, parents are welcome to review and/or request a copy their child’s school records. Records forwarded to the new school include the permanent and temporary files (including the health file).
