The public records of the Franklin-McKinley School District are governed by the state of California’s Public Records Act § 6250 et seq. The Superintendent’s Office is responsible for ensuring that all public records requests are handled in a timely and uniform manner.
What is a public record?
The California Public Records Act guarantees the public have access to public records of governmental bodies, including School Districts.
Public records in the California Public Records Act are defined as “any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public’s business prepared, owned, used, or retained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics.”
Anyone can request public documents in California, and a purpose does not have to be stated. The California Public Records Act does not regulate the use of records obtained from public agencies.
