The actual cost of duplication will be collected for copies of district public records in a form other than simple paper copies.

The actual labor cost of the personnel providing the service will be collected as permitted by state law if the request requires more than 15 minutes of clerical or supervisory assistance, including redaction services, by school district personnel.

A special service charge attributable to extensive use of information technology resources and/or labor cost of the personnel completing the request may be collected as permitted by state law.

Note: Although public records requests may be submitted anonymously, we must have at least a working telephone number OR email address by which to make contact with you to deliver records.
