Questions regarding the appropriateness of having certain pieces of information duplicated shall be referred to the Superintendent and/or his/her designees for determination, and if necessary, to the School Board’s attorney.

Costs associated with the provision of records shall include the charges for copying and delivering of the records. When authorized by law, the School Board may also charge for the time spent retrieving and producing any such records. A schedule of fees used to calculate costs associated with duplication of records shall be set by the School Board.


What happens after I make my request?

Legal Counsel may need to review and respond to requests for public records.  You will receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your request.  It is important that you provide current contact information as it may be necessary to contact you in order to clarify the request or confirm that you are willing to pay for copies.  While responses will be provided as expeditiously as possible, response time will, of necessity, depend on the scope of the request and how the documents are stored.
