Public Information Requests
Public Information Act During Coronavirus Pandemic
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the CDC’s ongoing recommendations, Melissa ISD has determined only a skeleton crew will be working until May 28, 2020 and until further notice. The attorney general does not count skeleton crew days observed by a governmental body as business days for the purpose of calculating deadlines under the Texas Public Information Act. Therefore, any requests received while Melissa ISD continues to operate with only a skeleton crew will be processed upon Melissa ISD’s full staff returning to work. Please note, the dates requiring a skeleton crew may change or be altered as the information and decisions made related to the pandemic are constantly changing. We appreciate your understanding and patience at this time. If you have any questions, please contact Maddie Coe, Director of Communications, at email@example.com.
The Communications department handles all public information requests for the district. All requests for public information are handled in accordance with the Texas Public Information Act, Texas Government Code §552.001. Please refer to the overview, linked below, distributed by the Texas Attorney General’s Office.
Requests for public information should be submitted in writing by fax, email, U.S. mail, or in person. This procedure allows the Community Relations department to accurately document the date each request is received and respond in writing within the required time period of ten (10) business days. Documents which are deemed public information will be made available for review and/or retrieval. For those persons requesting copies of the information, the district charges per Melissa Schools Board of Trustee policy ( GBAA, Exhibit).
