Public Information Act Requests
How To Request Public Information
Your request must be in writing and addressed to the JISD Communications Department. Only written submissions trigger a request under the Public Information Act. Requests made by facsimile or electronic mail must be addressed to the Department of Communications. (electronic submissions go directly to Communications Director)
- Provide your full name and contact information including email/or fax (if available).
- Provide a heading for your submission that reads “Public Information Request.”
- Provide a detailed, precise description of the nature and scope of information you are seeking.
- Requests should be for documents or other information that is already in existence. JISD should not be expeted to create new documents as a result of a request.
Governmental bodies are not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis in the future. By law, JISD has 10 business days to produce responsive documents or a response regarding the status of the request.
