Crowley ISD Public Information Request (Open Records)
The Texas Public Information Act gives the public the right to request access to government information.
MAKING A REQUEST
The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to a government body. The request must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act does not require a governmental body to create new information, to do legal or other research, to answer questions, or to explain district decisions.
CHARGES TO THE REQUESTOR
A person may ask to view the information, get copies of the information, or both. If a request is for copies of information, the governmental body may charge for the copies. If a request is only for an opportunity to inspect information, then usually the governmental body may not impose a charge on the requestor. However, under certain limited circumstances a governmental body may impose a charge for access to information. All charges imposed by a governmental body may for copies or for access to information, must comply with attorney general rules, unless another statute authorizes an agency to set its own charges.
