Public information requests, sometimes called Open Records Requests, are handled by Celina ISD staff with assistance from our school district attorney, as needed. However, requests for student records by the student's parent or guardian are managed by the principal at the school campus. Board policy permits the principal to provide one copy of the student's educational record for the parent or guardian free of charge. Any additional copies will require copy charges per Board Policy GBA. Requests for Special Education records may be submitted to the Special Programs Department. If any part of a written request for student records includes information that might be deemed private under state or federal law, the written request will be sent to the Attorney General's Office for review.
As open records requests are submitted, CISD works to meet information requests in the order they are received and follows all State and Federal laws. By law, CISD has 10 business days to determine whether or not to seek an Attorney General's ruling regarding releasing of the information.
To request help obtaining records, please reach out to Karen Fitzgerald, District Communications Officer.
