Public Information Requests (Open Records)
Brock 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 for copies or for access to information, must comply with attorney general rules, unless another statute authorizes an agency to set its own charges.
Public information requests for school district records are to be filed with the BISD Administration.
A request can be submitted in one of four ways:
1. Personal appearance at the Brock ISD Administration Building
Brock ISD Administration Building 410 Eagle Spirit Lane Brock, Texas 76087

Attn: Open Records
4. Emailed requests can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Director of Communications should be contacted when a representative of the media visits a BISD facility.
Cameras/reporters will not be allowed inside the facility unless the appropriate staff members have been notified and it is determined that such a visit will not be disruptive.
