Open Records

The Middletown Area School District is committed to working with the public so that District operations are in full compliance with Pennsylvania's open records law, Right-to-Know. District Policy 801 establishes the appropriate procedure to ensure the District complies with all requirements of Right-to-Know law, which allows legal residents of the United States to inspect and obtain copies of public records.

Section 4 of District Policy 801 requires that all requests must be in writing and made on the District's Right-to-Know form. Copies of the District form may be obtained by request or on this webpage under the Forms (see right side of this webpage under Documents & Forms). The written request must identify or describe the public record sought with sufficient specificity to allow the Open Records Officer to determine which record is being requested, the medium in which the record is requested, and the name and address to which the District should send its response. The District may, in its sole discretion, honor verbal requests or written requests not made on a Right-to-Know Request Form in cases where access can be granted immediately or granting such request serves the convenience of the District. However, such requests shall not be considered an official request requiring a District response under this policy.

The District reserves the right to deny a requester access to a public record if the requester has made repeated requests for the same record and the repeated requests are unreasonably burdensome on the District.

If the District denies a request for a public record, the requester may challenge the denial or deemed denial by making an appeal with the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records within fifteen (15) business days from the mailing date of the written denial or deemed denial.
