After We Receive Your Request:
Within five business days of receiving a public record request, the Public Records Officer will:
Provide the record; or
Provide an internet address and link on the district’s web site to the specific records requested; or
Acknowledge that the district has received the request and provide a reasonable estimate of the time the district will require to respond to the request; or
Deny the public record request with a written statement as to why it is being withheld and a citation of the specific exemption (RCW) that applies.
In the event that the request is unclear, the District will contact the requestor for clarification of the records requested. Once clarified, the District will respond in accordance with the guidelines stated above. If the requestor fails to clarify the request, the District may consider the request closed.
No request will be denied solely on the basis that the request is overbroad.
If the record requested for inspection and/or copying contains both information exempted from disclosure and nonexempt information, the District will produce as much of the record as possible, with the exempt portion redacted, and will provide a written explanation for the redaction.
