Open Records Requests
Under the Georgia Open Records Act (OCGA §50-18-70 to §50-18-77), all public records are available for inspection and copying unless they are specifically exempted from disclosure under the law. If a government agency or custodian of public records withholds a public document from production under an Open Records Request, they will cite to the provision of Georgia law that exempts the record from being produced.
All Open Records Requests to inspect or copy records must be made in writing to the Executive Director of Administration and Policy, Jorge Gomez. The school district will provide information relating to the request, as permissible and applicable by law, within three business days after it has been received by the Executive Director of Administration and Policy. If production of the information is not possible within that timeframe, the Executive Director of Administration and Policy will issue correspondence with an explanation. Once an estimate has been provided, the requestor will have ten (10) days to approve the estimate. Failure to do so within the specified time limit will result in the request being null and void.
For all other legal related matters and requests such as Subpoenas, Notices To Produce, or Requests for Production of Documents, please contact Jorge Gomez’s office at LegalRequests@gcpsk12.org.
