It is PVSchools' policy to comply with the Arizona public records law in a timely, accurate and complete manner. Public records not protected from disclosure will be made available upon request.

Please do not complete the Public Records Request for a transcript request. Learn how to submit a Student Transcript request.

What Is the Public Records Law?

The Arizona public records law Arizona Revised Statutes §39-121 et seq., applies to all public entities with the intent of ensuring that government entities are accountable to the public. The law does this by giving the public the right to view records concerning the agency's activities.

What Is a Public Record?

A public record is a record made by a public official in pursuance of a duty or to serve as an official transaction for public reference. It can also be a record that is required by law to be kept, such as meetings and minute notes.

Which Records Are Exempt?

Disclosure is not required where it is prohibited by law or court ruling, such as FERPA-protected information. A list of protected documents can be found in the Arizona Attorney General publication Arizona Agency Handbook.  

Are There Fees Associated with the Request?

Copy fees will be collected in accordance with PVSchools procedures. The charge is 35 cents per page.
