Public Records Requests
Maintaining transparency and trust with stakeholders
The California Public Records Act (CPRA) was originally enacted in 1968 and requires that governmental records be made accessible to the public upon request, unless otherwise exempted by law. Pursuant to the CPRA, the public can inspect or receive a copy of any record unless the record is exempted from disclosure under the act.
Individuals requesting transcripts and school records should contact the school of attendance or the school's district office from which the records are needed. Learn more about submitting records requests for one of SDCOE's Court or Community Schools.
