• Records Management

    School District Records

    Texas Administrative Code §441.180(7) defines Records Management as "the application of management techniques to the creation, use, maintenance, retention, preservation, and disposition of records for the purposes of improving the efficiency of record keeping, ensuring access to public information under the Public Information Act, and reducing costs."

    The Records and Information Management Department within the Business/Finance Office is responsible for the oversight of records management district wide.

    All Open Records requests should be referred to the Communications Department immediately upon receipt.
    Public Information Requests
    The Communications Department handles all public information requests for the district. All requests for public information are handled in accordance with the Texas Public Information Act, Texas Government Code §552.001. Requests for public information should be submitted in writing by fax, e-mail, U.S. mail, or in person. This procedure allows the Communications Department to accurately document the date each request is received and respond in writing within the required 10 business day time period. Requests must ask for records or information already in existence. The TPIA does not require the district to create new information. 
    Student Record Requests
    Student record requests fall under the guidelines set forth by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Requests for a transcript or other student records should be directed to the current or last campus your student attended.
