I am a special education teacher for high-risk, special education students in grades 9-12 at Heide Trask Senior High School in southeastern North Carolina. Trask is an economically disadvantaged school with 54% of students receiving free lunch and 7% non-English speaking students. Our special education department is in need of a locking filing cabinet to safely and conveniently store confidential student records. A major responsibility to all special education students and their families is completing Individual Education Plans in an appropriate and timely fashion. These plans stay with each student throughout their entire academic careers, including post-secondary education. The large size of most folders makes transporting them from office to classroom extremely difficult. To give these records appropriate attention they must be stored in a private, safe, yet convenient location where only the students case manager and the special education coordinator can have access to them. The location we would prefer to use is inside the special educator's classroom. To do this we need the locking filing cabinet. Complete confidentiality is essential.
