California Public Records Act Policy
Public Records Act Request Policy - Access to information concerning the conduct of the people's business is a fundamental and necessary right of every person in this state. Records of Inglewood Unified School District which are not exempt from disclosure are available for inspection and copying in accordance with the California Public Records Act upon a request that reasonably describes an identifiable record or records.
The California Public Records Act is found in the California Government Code, beginning at Section 6250. Records subject to inspection and copying include any writings, meaning any handwriting, typewriting, printing, photostating, photographing, and every other means of recording upon any form of communication or representation, including information available in an electronic format. (See, Government Code § 6252(f) and 6253.9.)
Records Exempt from PRA
Records that are exempt of PRAs include drafts and notes, pending litigation, and employee medical files. In addition, documents can be exempt if they pertain to security procedures, complaints or investigations conducted by a local state or police agency, or social welfare information including medical records and social security information.
