Open Records Request

  • School District 49 is open and transparent with its community. We encourage anyone seeking information to contact the district communications team with questions or information requests. It is the intent of District 49 to provide documents and information to the public without requiring a CORA request.
     
    Any citizen wishing to make a more formal request for information may fill out Colorado Open Records Act request form. The statute gives everyone broad access to government records throughout the state. The Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) is a series of laws designed to allow the public access to the records of government agencies at all levels in Colorado, including schools districts. Most records are public and open for inspection. Two important exceptions are student records and personnel files. To learn more about CORA, please read the Colorado Open Records Act (PDF) and view the Attorney General opinion concerning CORA requests (PDF).

    All open records requests should be submitted directly to District 49's director of communications. There is no requirement for any special format for the request, but for your convenience, we have provided a form below. If you choose to not use the online web form, please submit the request in writing via email or postal mail. Please be as specific as possible about the information you are seeking to help ensure that we are able to respond to your request accurately and in the time required by law.

    The information you are seeking may already be available on our website or elsewhere online. If you are looking for financial records, please visit our financial transparency page before submitting your request. 
     
    Other important information may be found in student, school and staff Board policies. View the District 49 Board of Education policy KDB Public's Right to Know/Access to Information and the regulation guiding its execution KDB-R Public's Right to Know/Access Information.
