As part of our effort to maintain up-to-date local government records retention schedules, we are currently working to update Local Schedule SD: Records of Public School Districts. We will be presenting a draft to our Commission at a meeting later this year to begin the Local Schedule approval process, but before we begin the official update process we would like to solicit feedback from the local governments we serve.
A current draft of updates to Local Schedule SD is available on our website. The proposed changes to Local Schedule SD are primarily based on changes in law or questions and suggested revisions we’ve received from local governments since the last schedule update in 2011. We also propose removing several series and reorganizing the schedule to reduce redundancy and make Local Schedule SD easier to use.
We would greatly appreciate any feedback you are able to provide about the proposed changes. We rely heavily on subject matter experts in the field to provide feedback on these schedules to improve usability and compliance. We understand this is a busy time for most school districts and we truly appreciate your assistance. If you are not able to provide comments at this time, do not worry. You will have a second opportunity to provide feedback during the formal comment period later this year.
We will be accepting comments and feedback until 5:00 pm on Friday, September 22, 2017. Please send written comments to Sarah Jacobson, Manager, Records Management Assistance, Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711; by fax to 512-936-2306; or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
