CFR Sec. 300.535(b): Referral to and action by law enforcement and judicial authorities

(b) Transmittal of records

(1) An agency reporting a crime committed by a child with a disability must ensure that copies of the special education and disciplinary records of the child are trasmitted for consideration by the appropriate authorities to whom the agency reports the crime.

(2) An agency reporting a crime under this section may transmit copies of the child's special education and disciplinary records only to the extent that the transmission is permitted by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

The tool currently only includes the federal requirements. Federal requirements apply in all states and states may add on (but not subtract) from the Federal laws. The tool doesn't currently incorporate court decisions or other authoritative interpretation of the law that can clarify issues not explicitly clear from the statute or regulations alone.
