Alumni can obtain high school records and transcripts by submitting a signed request form to either the school or school district they attended, depending on the record keeping practices of the district. For example, individual high schools in Boston retain records, while in Gilroy, California, the district offices store records.
In Gilroy, current students and alumni who graduated within the past year can obtain records directly from the high school. In Boston, the central office issues records for alumni from high schools that closed after the student graduated. Due to privacy concerns, release of records requires written permission from the former student.
