How to Request a Public Record from Battle Ground Public Schools

(Note: Please see information above for all Transcript Requests)

Washington law requires state and local agencies, which includes public schools, to make public records available to the public. This law, the Washington State Public Records Act, which is found at RCW 42.56, supports the public’s right to be informed about what their government is doing.

The law lists certain public records that do not have to be disclosed. These exemptions are intended to prevent unreasonable invasions of personal privacy or the use of public records for personal or commercial gain. If certain information contained in a document is exempt, it will be redacted (blocked out) from the document, but you will still be provided a copy of the document.

The law requires that the public records requested are "identifiable." Your public records request must include enough specific description so the district can locate the record you are requesting. A general question is not a public disclosure request. For example, if you are requesting the district budget, be sure to state for which year you want the budget and if you want the entire document (about 100 pages) or a summary. Please submit the request by completing the district’s Request for Public Record form.
