PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS
Under the California Public Records Act (CPRA), the District must determine within 10 calendar days starting after the date of receipt of a request whether the request seeks copies of identifiable public records that may be disclosed and must promptly notify the requester of this determination.
If the request is received after business hours or on a weekend or holiday, the 10-day period begins the next business day for responding to the request. If there are identifiable public records, then the determination must state the estimated time and date when records may be available for inspection or copying.
In some instances, the time limit to initially respond may be extended by written notice from the Superintendent or designee to the person making the request setting forth reasons for the extension and the date on which a determination is expected to be made.
The 10-day initial response and 14-day extension are the time periods for notifying a requester as to whether the District has public records in its possession that are responsive to a request. The CPRA does not require that records actually are produced within these time periods. However, the CPRA does require that records be made available promptly once a determination has been made that the district retains records that are responsive to a request.
