• Public Information & Open Records Requests

    Please be aware that there will be a delay in processing your Texas Public Information Act request while the school district remains closed, operates on a skeleton crew or remotely, or is otherwise impacted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Pursuant to guidance issued by the Texas Attorney General’s Office, the allowable time period for responding to a request does not include any calendar days when the school district’s administrative offices are closed or operating with only a skeleton crew, or if the school district’s records cannot be accessed because staff is either working remotely or directly involved in the public health or epidemic response. 

    Texas Government Code, Chapter 552, gives you the right to access government records; and an officer for public information and the officer’s agent may not ask why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public. Certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of the information. Governmental bodies shall promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory, or by judicial decision, or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought.

     

    All requests must be submitted in writing and should contain:

    • Your name
    • E-mail address
    • Address
    • Phone number
    • Fax number (if applicable)
    • Description of the information and/or document is requested
