Central Records maintains the records of former Pinellas County public school students going back to the early 1900s, when Pinellas County split off from Hillsborough County. The records may be on microfilm, in hard copy, or in an electronic format, depending on their age.
As students move through the district, their records move with them. The elementary school records of a student promoted to middle school will follow that student to the higher level school. The records of a student who has attended elementary school, middle school, and high school in the district will be at the last school attended.
When a student leaves the district, the student records are transferred to Central Records. Normally middle school, high school, and exceptional student education center student records are transferred to Central Records after having been inactive for three school years. Inactive records from elementary schools remain in the schools for at least five years.
