The NYS Archives assigns a retention period to record series determined to have enduring historical information or significant information necessary to meet fiscal, legal or administrative needs. Types of records with retention schedules include:

If your district is changing from a legacy student or financial system, this service is an effective solution to retain critical data from these systems.
