    Given the legal access during the current Covid-19 Pandemic, we have updated our process for fulfilling transcript requests for current and former students. 


    The Student Records Office is a division of the Student Services Department.  This division maintains academic records of all former students of Richmond County Schools.   The records of a current student physically follows them through their academic years, from school to school.   If you need copies of your childs records and they are a current student of Richmond County or if it has been one (1) school year since your child was enrolled in Richmond County, you must contact the current school or the last school they are enrolled in to request the records.    When calling the school to request records for a current student or one that has not been withdrawn for more than one school year, you should ask to speak to the Counselor or the Principal.   Please refer to the 2022-2023 Directory of Schools for a list of all school contact numbers.  After a student has been withdrawn for one (1) school year, those records would then be sent to this office for dissemination.
