The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 1967,  is a federal law that gives individuals the right to access information.

 

State of Alaska Statutes, 40.25.110 – 40.25.125 govern the disclosure of information and public records requests.

 

How to Make a FOIA Request: Before making a request, look to see if the information you are interested is in already publicly available through the Anchorage School District. If the information is not available, you may submit a FOIA to ASD Department of Communications and Community Outreach. A FOIA form is available for online submission or a request in writing may be made reasonably describing the records you seek. The request must be made in writing.

 

Alaska Statute provides that agencies may charge a fee for providing copies of public records and the ASD costs are:

 

Photocopies - $0.20 per page

Audiotapes -- $10.00 per tape

FAX -- $0.50 for the first page and $0.10 for each additional page

 

The Alaska law does not specify a time requirement for responding to public requests. ASD has set a limit of ten (10) business days within which to respond, and the District may take an extension for an additional ten (10) days.

 

If you wish to submit a request in writing, you may send to:

FOIA_Requests@asdk12.org

 

                If you have any questions, you may direct the questions to the FOIA email.
