Open Records Request
Jeffco Public Schools records are public unless otherwise protected from disclosure. Records available to the public must be inspected during regular business hours in the presence of the custodian of the record in a location that will not disrupt school district operations. There is no duty to create a public record that does not already exist.
If more than one hour of staff time is required to respond to the request for records, staff time in excess of one hour will be charged to the person seeking access at the rate of $20 per hour, to be paid prior to inspection of the records. Copies may be furnished upon request and within a reasonable time at a cost not to exceed 25 cents per page, or the cost of the electronic file (CD) to be determined by the custodian of records. For the purposes of these procedures, Communications Services shall serve as the Custodian of Records. The fee must be paid in advance. At the custodian’s prerogative, in lieu of the fee set forth above, the requestor may be charged a reasonable retrieval fee based on the actual cost of responding, including employee time, or gathering, preparing, and copying requested documents.
If records are readily available, the fee may be waived or the fee may be a lesser amount per page for copies.
