Record Retention at Parkland College

According to the Illinois Local Records Act, all records created in official capacity by the employees of government agencies must follow the Retention and Disposition Schedule set in place by the agency and the Local Records Commission. If there are records you no longer need, contact the person in your department responsible for record disposal or the Record Controller in the Business Office. You can also refer to Policy 3.10 Records in Parkland's Policies and Procedures Manual as well as the Retention and Disposition Schedule linked below. For more information about the Act, check out the resources below.
