How to Make A Public Records Request?
An individual (parent, community member, taxpayer, etc.) or organization can make formal requests for school records (curriculum, emails, recordings…) pursuant to the California Public Records Act. California Law requires that the school district reply within 10 days.
In PUSD, a public records request (PRA) can be made to the Public Records Act Request Center via this link. You can also check the status of your request on this portal.
What Should I Do About Age-Inappropriate School Books?
