§ 57.29. Reproduction of records and disposition of the originals.
Any local officer may reproduce any record in his custody by
microphotography or other means that accurately and completely
reproduces all the information in the record. Such official may then
dispose of the original record even though it has not met the prescribed
minimum legal retention period, provided that the process for
reproduction and the provisions made for preserving and examining the
copy meet requirements established by the commissioner of education.
Such copy shall be deemed to be an original record for all purposes,
including introduction as evidence in proceedings before all courts and
administrative agencies.
