Public Information Act Request

For guidance regarding the Texas Public Information Act procedures adopted by the Austin Independent School District and your rights as a requestor, you may review the District’s notice required under section 552.205 of the Texas Government Code. You can find additional Texas Public Information Act resources on the Office of the Attorney General's website.

When requesting records, documents or data, please note that the district is not required to create new information, perform legal research, or answer questions.

To request records, documents, or data, please complete this form.

I request the following documents from Austin ISD under the Texas Public Information Act, Texas Government Code, Chapter 552. (Describe the records you are requesting as specifically as possible.  Please include subject matter, key terms, specific words (e.g. program names, department names, school names), and time frame (dates).  If the information request is unclear or if a large amount of information is requested you may be contacted to discuss clarifying or narrowing your request.
Under the Public Information Act, some categories of information do not have to be released. Exceptions to disclosure fall into two general categories: 1) mandatory exceptions that make information confidential and require a governmental body to withhold information, and 2) discretionary exceptions that allow but do not require a governmental body to withhold information. In most instances, a governmental body is required to request a decision from the Attorney General in order to withhold information from a requestor. However, a requestor may permit a governmental body to redact information without requesting an Attorney General decision. You are not required to agree to the redaction of any information responsive to your request, but doing so may streamline the handling of your request. If you agree to redactions in this request, then you may request the redacted information in a future information request.
Do you agree to the redaction of information that is subject to mandatory exceptions, provided such redactions are clearly labeled on the information you received?
Do you agree to the redaction of information that is subject to discretionary exceptions, provided such redactions are clearly labeled on the information you receive?
