Welcome to Public Records
IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING DISTRICT CLOSURE AND PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS
Thank you for your interest in Everett Public Schools. Due to the Governor’s mandate ordering the closure of all schools in Washington State to halt the spread of the Coronavirus, the public records staff are currently working remotely.
New requests for public records can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, where you will receive an automated reply that will serve as an acknowledgement that your public records request has arrived in our mailbox. In accordance with RCW 42.56.520, you can expect to receive a formal response to your request within five business days of the date your request was received, providing an estimated date for the production of your records.
Please note that public records staff, as well as many other district employees, are working remotely, which may cause delays in the time it will take to complete your request. Our ability to locate, access, and assemble some records may not be possible until staff return to work sites and resume normal schedules. Staff will contact requesters on or before the next anticipated response date previously provided, to keep you apprised of the status of your request for public records.
We strive to make access to public records as convenient as possible while maintaining compliance with applicable laws, including the Public Records Act (RCW 42.56).
The district's records may be requested by the public, and many records are fully or partially available for public viewing. As our business is most often about students, families, and staff, some of the information contained in certain records may be protected under federal and state privacy laws.
Many of the records citizens are looking for are available without submitting a public records request. We encourage you to please take a moment to review our Frequently Asked Questions and list of Indexed and Commonly Requested Public Records to see if the records you are seeking are publicly available before beginning your request for public records.
