Private School: how long to keep student health records?

  1. Yup, the title about sums it up . My school has never had a nurse before and I am spending the afternoon transferring into my file cabinet many pounds of files for kids who haven't been here in years. If you work at a private school, how long does your school hold onto these for?

    Thanks so much!

    Have you checked with your state dept. of education (or whatever it's called in your state)? They should have standards/regulations about maintaining school records. I would not throw anything away until I had a clear answer from someone official.
