Annual destruction of permanent records
According to the state, permanent records may be shredded no sooner than five years after graduation from high school. Our annual records destruction will be held after June 1 of each year. For example, records from the class of 2014 will be destroyed this year (2019).
Graduates may pick up their records five years after their graduation date, and before June 1 of that year.
