Public Records Requests

California Public Records Act Requests

The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) is committed to transparency and to providing easy access to public records pursuant to the California Public Records Act (CPRA). The California Public Records Act gives the public the right to access records created and maintained by public agencies in the course of their normal business.

Pursuant to Government Code Section 7920.530(a), a public record is defined as “any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public's business prepared, owned, used, or retained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics.” Public records requests may be used to obtain "records," which include a wide variety of documents and other materials (including print, photographic, and electronic formats) that were created or retained by the organization and are, at the time the request is filed, in the organization’s possession and control.  

Records subject to disclosure under the CPRA may include email or other communications from members of the public or which reference them. While the District reviews all responsive records to determine if this information should be disclosed, in many cases references to members of the public, or the content of their communications to the District are subject to disclosure. Permissible exemptions from disclosure include, but are not limited to, the following:

Certain personnel records
Medical records
Confidential student information
Attorney-client privileged communications
Preliminary drafts, notes, or memoranda not ordinarily retained in the normal course of business
