- Storage boxes for retention use are provided by the district and can be obtained by contacting the Business office. Records to be destroyed should be packed in boxes no larger than a copy paper box (storage boxes should not be used to pack records to be destroyed). Records destruction will be scheduled annually in the fall to give each campus / department time to prepare. The Business office will notify the campus / department offices of the scheduled dates for records to be picked up by the Maintenance department.
