Permanent Records

I always hear about a person's permanent record, but what exactly does this 'record' contain?  If my characters were to break into a school to find these, where would they most likely be located and what kinds of things will it contain?  If they contain things like detention or suspensions, would they give the cause of the detention/suspension or just that the student had had one?  Also, if the student had transferred from a private school to a public school, would the information follow them and how far back would the records go?  Would a prestigious private school monitor its student more closely than a public school?  Any and all help will be very much appreciated.

ETA:  The story is set in a suburban high school, present day America.  I googled for some of this and read stuff on yahoo answers, but nothing could tell me that much detail about permanent records.
