School Divisions in the province are governed by The Student Record Regulation (Alberta Regulation 97/2019).
“Retention of student record
4(1) Subject to subsection (2), a board or an early childhood services program private operator must retain the student records for a student or child containing the information referred to in section 2(1) and (4) for 7 years after the student or child ceases to attend a school operated by the board or the early childhood services program private operator or until the student record has been provided in accordance with section 8(1) or (2).
Disposal and destruction of a student records
5(1) A board, other than a person responsible for the operation of a private school, must dispose of or destroy student records that are no longer required to be kept under section 4.”
Moving forward, after April 15, 2020, PRSD will not retain records past the required 7-year retention.
