You have a legal right to see your child’s educational records. Many school districts have a standard form to fill out for requesting records.  You can ask the principal or school secretary for it.

If the school doesn’t have a form, you can use this sample letter. Customize it with information about your child, and keep these points in mind:

  • If it would be hard for you to come to the school to view the records, add a sentence to the letter explaining why.

  • Ask the school to mail you a copy of your child’s records.

  • Be sure to specify where you’d like the copies to be sent.

  • You also can make a request via email. Sometimes that’s the quickest option, and it makes it easy to keep a record of the communications.
