• District Records Available to the Public

    Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) Requests
    FOIL requests are managed by the Alfred-Almond Central School District Office and may be submitted in one of three ways:

    To ensure efficient processing of your application, please provide the following information:

    • Requester’s name, address, telephone number, and email address.
    • A reasonable description of the records sought, containing specific information, which will allow the District to identify and locate the records.
    • The requester’s preference to inspect/review records, copy records, or both.

    The District’s Records Access Officer can either:

    • Approve the request;
    • Deny the request, stipulating the legal reasons for denial;
    • Approve the request in part and deny the request in part (i.e., some of the requested materials are released and some are withheld, or certain information is deleted for privacy reasons or other legal reasons), specifying the legal reasons for the denied portions thereof;
    • Give notice of an extension of time needed to fulfill the request.

    For a full subject matter list consisting of the categories of all records the District possesses, please consult the NYS Records Retention and Disposition Schedule.

    Fee for Duplication of Records
    The Alfred-Almond Central School District charges the statutorily permitted fee of $.25 per page for reproducing records requested under FOIL, or the actual cost of reproducing the records (Public Officers Law §87[1][b] and [c]). Payment must be made to the Alfred-Almond Central School District by check or money order.
