Educational Records Requests

Fulton County Schools’ Records Management Department promotes a sound, effective, efficient, and economically managed records program that meets all operational, legal, and regulatory requirements.

The Department ensures proper retention, disposition, utilization, accessibility, and preservation of records compliant to federal, state, and local Laws.

A student's educational records are confidential and may only be disclosed as allowed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), or with the written permission of the student's parent or legal guardian, or of the student (if over 18 or attending a postsecondary school).

The Records Management Department also processes all subpoenas and court orders for student records and works diligently to ensure that both student and administrative records are properly maintained and protected.

Note: If you are requesting any emails/communication; please submit an Open Records Request.

Diplomas are issued to students when they successfully complete all graduation requirements. The Fulton County Board of Education does not maintain copies of diplomas. Replacement diplomas may be ordered from their graduating high school at the student's expense, only if school is still in existence. However, the Fulton County Board of Education does maintain high school transcripts that contain proof of graduation and can issue a letter certifying that a student graduated with a diploma.
