The Board recognizes the importance of public records as the record of the District's actions and the repository of information about this District. These public records will be made available for access and duplication to the public, who has the right to request them, with certain exceptions, subject to law, Board policy, and Administrative Regulations.  

    A written request for access to a public record shall be submitted on the required form(s) and addressed to the Open Records Officer. Written requests may be submitted to the District in person, by mail to a designated facsimile machine, or to a designated email address. Upon receipt of a written request for access to a record, the Open Records Officer shall determine if the requested record is a public record and if the District has possession, custody, or control of that record, and respond as promptly as possible under the existing circumstances.

    The initial response shall grant access to the requested record; deny access to the requested record; partially grant and partially deny access to the requested record; notify the requester of the need for an extension of time to fully respond; or request more detail from the requester to clearly identify the requested material.

    More information and forms can be found on the District Right to Know webpage.
