Public Records Requests
Public records requests should be directed to the District’s Custodian of Public Records and should identify the records sought with reasonable clarity, so the District can identify responsive records. The District is not obligated to create new records in response to a request. The District asks (but does not require) that requests for public records be made in writing and via email. An optional form is available.
Although the District does not require that a requester provide their identity or a reason for their request, this information can reduce response times and enhance the District’s ability to identify, locate, and deliver the records sought. The District responds to requests for public records within a reasonable period of time, taking into consideration the facts and circumstances of the particular request. All requests are logged by the Treasurer’s office.

Student Education Record Requests
Student education records are not public records and generally cannot be shared, except with a student’s parent, or a student who is 18 years old or older. Parents or eligible students who wish to inspect education records should submit a request to the student’s principal, specifically identifying the records they wish to inspect. Additional information about education records is available in Board Policy JO and Board Policy JO-R.
