What the Expert Says:

The school is probably required to keep records for a time and then are transferred to storage. 1974 predates most computer based records.  Her pediatrician, however, is responsible to keep those records for some years beyond her majority.  Try her/his office first. Most of us in pediatrics keep those records forever. Remember if she is over 18years old, she as an adult must send the request for records.
