Guidelines for Access to Public Records

Guidelines for Access to Public Records

1. Request Methods: There is no specific form that must be used to make a request. A request can be made orally or in writing, but written requests are strongly encouraged to help reduce confusion about the records requested. Requests should be submitted to Jeffrey Day.

2. Identifying Records: To help us provide records promptly, please provide specific information about the records you seek including the record name, subject matter, author's name, date, office, ordepartment that created and/or maintained the record. When a record cannot be identified by name, please be as specific as possible in describing the record, based on its content.

3. Time Deadlines: The District is required to determine within 10 days (can be extended to 24 days for voluminous/complex requests), after receipt of a records request, whether or not the requested records are subject to disclosure, and to notify the person making the request of the reasons for that determination. The records themselves are not required to be released in 10 days. At the time of making a determination, the District will provide a good faith estimate of when the records will be available. Please be aware that the District receives a very high volume of requests for records and that requests are generally processed in the order in which they are received.

4. Copying Fees: Disclosable records are normally provided at a cost of $0.10 per page and will be sent upon receipt of full payment.

5. Exemptions: The District may refuse to disclose any records or portions of records which are exempt from disclosure under the law.
