Public Records Request

The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) is committed to transparency and 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 6252(e), 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 obtained 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 documents that invade an individual's right to privacy (e.g., privacy in certain personnel, medical, or student records) or hinder the government's need to perform its assigned functions in a reasonably efficient manner (e.g., maintaining confidentiality of investigative records, official information, records related to pending litigation, and preliminary notes or memoranda).

Following release of responsive documents, the District will attempt to contact everyone referenced/included.

In order to identify responsive records and review them for possible exemptions, LGSUHSD may take up to 10 days to respond to a CPRA request (Cal. Gov. Code § 6253(c)) and, if necessary, may take a reasonable period of time thereafter to produce the non-exempt records that are responsive to the request (Motorola Communication & Electronics v. Dept. of General Svcs., 55 Cal. App. 4th 1340, 1349 (1997)).
