IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE MUNICIPAL AND SCHOOL DISTRICT TIME-TABLES
The Retention Time-Table for Municipal Records and the Retention Time-Table of School Records are now obsolete, and should not be used for authorization to destroy records.
These two reference documents, issued by the former Public Records Division of the Department of Buildings and General Services, were known to have multiple typographical errors that resulted in incorrect guidance on record retention. In addition, the time-tables did not indicate the office to which each disposition order had been issued. Thus, offices had no way of knowing if they could legally apply a disposition order.
The disposition orders themselves remain in effect if they have not been superseded. For guidance on record retention, review the resources available on the Record Retention page. Contact VSARA if you have further questions.
