• The California Education Code § 56504 ensures parents the right and opportunity to examine all school records of his or her child and to receive copies of these records within five business days after making a request either orally or in writing.

    The Los Angeles Unified School District has established a Custodian of Records to receive requests for records and to ensure these records are copied and provided to the individual making the request.
