District officials will forward transcripts and disciplinary records involving suspension or expulsion from the cumulative record upon the request of bona fide educational institution with whom the student intends or is instructed to enroll, parent, legal guardian, or the student if he has attained eighteen years of age or is attending an institution of post secondary education. 

With the exception of the high school transcript, high school grade reports, and attendance records, all material in the student cumulative record shall be destroyed five years after the student has or would have completed the 12th grade in the school district.
