    The General Records Schedule and the Disposal Authorization are two tools district personnel can use in managing their records.
     
    General Records Schedule
    The Pinellas County School's General Records Schedule is a compilation of applicable State of Florida retention schedules and retention schedules established with the state specifically for this school district. It is a guideline only, specifying the minimum required retention periods for district records. It does not authorize the destruction of records.

    Disclaimer: The General Records Schedule is provided here as a tool for the use of personnel in Pinellas County Schools. The General Records Schedule includes retention requirements that were established with the Florida Department of State, State Library and Archives for records specific to this school district. These retention requirements cannot be assumed to apply to similar records in other agencies.
  • Disposal Authorization

    Schools and departments are encouraged to routinely dispose of those records that can legally be discarded. Annually, Central Records compiles a list of district records that have satisfied their required retention periods. The required retention period is determined by the Florida Department of State, State Library and Archives.

    The list of discardable records is distributed to schools and departments as a form called the Disposal Authorization. In accordance with state regulations, the form is used to report the volume of records destroyed as well as identify those records eligible for destruction. (See 1B-24.003(10)(e), F.A.C.) 

    Disclaimer: The Disposal Authorization is provided here as a tool for the use of personnel in Pinellas County Schools. The Disposal Authorization includes retention requirements that were established with the Florida Department of State, State Library and Archives for records specific to this school district. These retention requirements cannot be assumed to apply to similar records in other agencies.
