RIGHT TO KNOW

Beginning January 1, 2009, Pennsylvania’s new Right to Know Law went into effect. The new law established that all records kept by government are presumed to be open to the public, with some exceptions. The Upper Dauphin Area School District, operating in full compliance with the law, has established procedures for requesting access to public records.

The Upper Dauphin Area School District Policy 801 – Public Records specifies the process for open records requests and specifies the duties of the open records officer.
