The Floyd County Board of Education approved the destruction of old financial records previously housed at the Central Office.

The documents will be shredded in accordance records retention requirements, board officials reported.

The board recently moved Central Office staff to the former Allen Central High School in Eastern, and during the move, officials uncovered numerous boxes of old financial records that had been stored.

At a Dec. 16 meeting, board members approved an agreement with SHRED-ALL Documents of Pikeville to provide a “secure cleanout services” of these documents off-site at a AAA NAID Certified security plant. The agreement gives board officials the option to view the destruction of documents remotely to reduce shredding time.

The cost of the service will be determined after the documents are collected for destruction.
