(f) Personnel Records
Personnel records shall be kept on all current employees and shall include information usually expected in good personnel administration.
A file shall be kept for all resigned or retired employees, including such essential information as shall seem appropriate to the administration as specified by state and federal laws.
The Superintendent, on behalf of the Board, shall notify the employee and a collective bargaining representative, if any, in writing when a request is made for disclosures of the employee’s personnel, medical or similar files, if the Superintendent reasonably believes disclosure would invade the employee’s privacy.
The records will be disclosed unless written objection is received from the teacher or employee’s collective bargaining representative within seven (7) business days from the receipt by employee or collective bargaining representative.
Records of a teacher’s performance and evaluation shall not be released without written consent of the teacher.
Records maintained or kept on file by the Board, which are records of a teacher’s personal misconduct, shall be deemed to be public records and subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. Disclosure of such records of a teacher’s personal misconduct shall not require consent of the teacher.
All written materials shall be made available for inspection by the employee and a collective bargaining representative, if any, involved at an off-duty time in the presence of an administrator. Upon request, a professional employee will be provided a copy of supervisory records and reports maintained in said employee’s personnel file as a guide to evaluation of performance.
In accordance with federal law, the District shall release information regarding the professional qualifications and degrees of teachers and qualifications of paraprofessionals to parents/guardians upon request for any teacher or paraprofessional who is employed by a school receiving Title I funds and who provides instruction to their child at that school.
Files containing medical information regarding an employee will be kept separate from other personnel files.
