Submitting a Request for Public Record
The General Counsel oversees all California Public Record Act requests that come to the District.
AUSD records are open to inspection at all times during regular office hours. Any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be available for inspection by any person requesting the record after deletion of the portions that are exempted by law. Except for public records exempt from disclosure by express provisions of law, a request for a copy of reasonably-described identifiable records shall be made available with minimal delay to the requesting party. An exact copy shall be provided unless it is impracticable to do so.
You will be notified within ten (10) days:
- Whether the District requires an extension of time to determine whether it has records responsive to your request
- Whether the District has records responsive to your request
- Whether the District has records responsive to your request but which are exempt from disclosure and the reasons for exemption
- Whether the District has records responsive to your request and the page count and cost of copying the records
- Based on the page count, the time required to copy the documents requested. Copying of documents responsive to your request will be completed as soon as possible.
If your request is to review documents rather than receive copies, the District will make an appointment at the time of presentation of your request for a future date reasonable to allow staff to gather the documents and review them for compliance with the provisions of the Public Records Act.
The charge for copies of any specifically described and identified public records not exempt from disclosure is $.01 per page for copied documents, except there will be no charge for less than ten (10) pages.
Records stored by the District in electronic format will be provided in electronic format when possible and when requested by any person.
