Thank you for your interest in the Kansas Open Records Act. The law is designed to ensure public access to information which forms the basis for public decision-making. The act defines a public record as "any recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, which is made, maintained, kept by or in the possession" of the school district.
Some records which would otherwise be public records are specifically excluded from the definition of public records. For a detailed list of exclusions, please click here.
An agency may require you to put your request in writing, and you must provide proof of your identity, if requested.
Reasonable fees, not exceeding actual cost, may be charged for access to records, copies of records, and staff time for processing your request.
