Timeline

The District has five (5) business days after receiving a written request to respond.  The response period can be extended by the FOIA Coordinator up to an additional ten (10) business days.  Day 1 of the response period is considered to be the next business day following receipt of the written request.  Email is considered “received” one (1) business day after it was sent.  However, if the request is electronically transmitted and delivered to a spam or junk mail folder, the request will be considered received one (1) day after the District becomes aware of it.

The FOIA Coordinator can grant a request; deny it full or in part citing one or more exemptions; or certify that the requested document/documents do not exist.
