Public Records Requests

Public Records Requests

The California Public Records Act was enacted in 1968 to:

  1. safeguard the accountability of government to the public;
  2. promote maximum disclosure of the conduct of governmental operations, and
  3. explicitly acknowledge the principle that secrecy is antithetical to a democratic system of “government of the people, by the people and for the people.”

The law specifies how the public may access governmental public records.

To demonstrate compliance, provide a copy of the Board’s Policy on public records requests.
