The CUM folder of a withdrawn student is considered an ‘inactive file’. If student moves to another GPS campus: Forward the CUM folder within (5) working days to the new GPS campus. If the student withdraws from the district: These files should be kept separate from the active CUM folders of and placed in the inactive section for the students current grade. On the top right hand corner: ( In pencil) indicate –DOW, expected Jr. High Campus & High School Campus.
If a school entity other than GPS requests records The copies following should be sent: Immunization record Withdrawal Grades & Withdrawal Form (SAIS number included) Any Standardized Test Results IEP/Psychological Records
When the grade promotes, the inactive files for that grade also promote. This will ensure that the student's CUM folder stays with the students expected grade level or COHORT class. For example, When a second grader withdraws, the CUM folder is added to the inactive file area for second grade. When the entire grade advances to third grade, the file would then advance to the inactive file area for 3rd grade. The withdrawn files will continue to advance with the grade.
When the 6th grade inactive files advance, the inactive files are boxed separately from the active files and sent to the Junior High the student would have attended. Before the inactive file is sent to the Junior High, any file inactive for 4 years must be cleaned out. (If the file is inactive for less than 4 years, the file and all of its contents are sent to the Junior High) The only permanent records that remain in the inactive CUM folder after 4 years inactive are: Permanent Record Card (PRC) 3 rd Grade AIMS test results ONLY Notice Of Student Withdrawal (copy of most recent)- If student withdrawn as a W4, a print out of the 10 consecutive, unexcused absences Immunization records
When the 8th grade inactive file advances, the inactive files are boxed separately from the active files and sent to the High School the student school would have attended. Before the inactive file is sent to the High School, any file inactive for 4 years must be cleaned out. If the file is inactive for less than 4 years, the file and all of its contents are sent to High School the student would have attended.. (If the file is inactive for less than 4 years, the file and all of its contents are sent to the High School) The only permanent records that remain in the inactive CUM folder after 4years inactive are: Permanent Record Card (PRC) 3 rd & *8 th Grade AIMS Test Results ONLY Notice Of Student Withdrawal (copy) If student withdrawn as a W4, a print out of the 10 consecutive, unexcused absences Immunization records Junior High School Transcript
The inactive CUM folders received from the Junior High Schools will be assigned a withdraw section for that grade. The inactive file will continue to advance with the COHORT class until that class has graduated.
Before files go to the warehouse the CUM folders must only contain the following permanent Records High School Transcript (AIMS information is printed on transcript) Junior High School Transcript Elementary Transcript (PRC) Blue Permanent record with test scores, (ACT, SAT, AP) with student photo on card Immunization record 3rd grade AIMS 8th grade AIMS Inactive files will also need a copy of the recent withdrawal form- If student is withdrawn as a W4, a print out of the 10 consecutive, unexcused absences.
ONLY High Schools will send CUM folder documentation to the warehouse as Elementary and Junior High Schools will continue to advance the CUM folders as previously explained. Two years after Graduation, please contact District Records to retrieve the Graduate & Inactive COHORT files. Example: Gilbert High School class of 2012 will be picked up in 2014 marked ‘ GHS Graduates 2012' and ‘GHS Inactive COHORT 2012 ‘. Specify the alphabetical contents of each box Example: “GHS Inactive COHORT 2012 A-F” Graduates and inactive files should be boxed separately.

A storage slip must be completed for each box including the destroy date and the date sent to warehouse. ☺Label Boxes ‘ GHS 2012 Non Permanent Records A-G’ Contact your building manager as these boxes are not to go with CUM folders.
