The State Board of Education may adopt by rule standards for the content and format of an Oregon electronic student record. An Oregon electronic student record may be used to transfer student record information from one educational institution to another.
The board may define the Oregon electronic student record to constitute a full and complete copy of the official student permanent record, student education record, student vision health record, student dental health record and certificate of immunization status that are required by state and federal law.
The standards established by the board shall include procedures and criteria for participation in the Oregon electronic student record program by educational institutions. An educational institution may apply to the Department of Education for a certificate of participation in the Oregon electronic student record program.
An educational institution that is approved for participation in the Oregon electronic student record program by the Department of Education:
Shall not be required to forward by mail or other means physical items such as original documents or photocopies to a receiving educational institution that also is approved for participation in the program. This paragraph does not apply to special education records that are specifically required by federal law to be physically transferred.
May elect to designate the Oregon electronic student record as the official student record.
Shall retain the official student record in compliance with state and federal law. [2001 c.450 §1; 2013 c.585 §4; 2015 c.558 §4]
