Public Records Request
The Board recognizes the importance of public records as the record of the acts of this District and the repository of information about this District. Members of the public have the right to inspect and copy, with certain exceptions, the public records of this District.
The public records of this District are defined by RC 149.43. The Board makes the public records of this District available for inspection and copying with the exception of those records exempted from such inspection and copying by law. The Treasurer/designee is the person responsible for public records.
In order to ensure all citizens have an equal right to examine and copy the records of this District and to ensure the inspection does not endanger the safety of the records or unreasonably interfere with the discharge of the duties of the Treasurer/designee, all requests for the inspection of public records are made in the following manner:
- Any individual wishing to review a public record may make the request verbally or in writing. This request form is available to those who prefer to put their request in writing. All requests are honored within a reasonable time.
- An individual may purchase copies of the public records of this District upon the payment of a fee, as set by the Superintendent/designee, equivalent to the cost of handling and re-production.
- No public record may be removed from the office in which it is maintained.
