All records maintained by Camas School District are available for public inspection unless specifically exempted by law. You are entitled to access public records, under reasonable conditions, and to copies of those records upon paying the costs of making the copy. In most cases, you do not have to explain why you want the records. However, specific information may be necessary to process your request. We may require information necessary to establish if disclosure would violate certain provisions of law.

The more precisely you can identify the record you seek, the more responsive we can be. Camas School District provides access to existing public records in its possession; however, the district is not required to collect information or organize data to create a record not existing at the time of the request.

Requests for emails, which are received with Requests for Student Records under FERPA, will be fulfilled through the Public Records Request process.

How We Will Respond to Your Public Records Request

Within five business days of receipt of the request (day one is the first working day after the request is received), the district will do one or more of the following:

  • Make the records available for inspection or copying; or
  • Identify an internet location where the record can be accessed. Requesters who cannot access the internet may be provided hard copies or access to a district terminal to access the record; or
  • If copies are requested and payment of a deposit for the copies, if any, is made or terms of payment are agreed upon, send the copies to the requester; or
  • Provide a reasonable estimate of when records will be available; or
  • If the requestor is unclear or does not sufficiently identify the requested records, the district may request clarification. The public records officer or designee may revise the estimate of when records will be available based on any clarification received; or
  • Deny the request.
