All requests must contain the following information:

Description of the records being requested. Describe the request as specifically as possible. If you are uncertain about which records contain the information you are seeking, provide a description of the type of information you are searching for, including date ranges.

Your contact information and preferred method of delivery of the records.

The District will only produce those documents permitted by CORA. Documents that are prohibited from disclosure under CORA will not be released.
