When any records disposal is considered, the Palm Beach County School District Records Retention Schedule must be consulted. Once records have met or exceeded the retention requirements and qualifications set forth in the retention schedule, the record series category can be destroyed.
To assist schools and department in the records disposal process, the Records Management Office develops the annual Records Disposal Certification. Before the Records Disposal Certification bulletin is distributed to all schools and departments, it is approved by the District's General Counsel and the Internal Auditor. A complete description of the Records Disposal Certification process is located below.
