1100.1Public’s Right to Know - Statistical Data


In recognition of the need for an informed citizenry and the public’s right to know, the Board provides citizens with information about the school system in statistics and studies reported at Board meetings and disseminated in the news media, as well as in special information-sharing meetings conducted by the staffs of the schools and by parent organizations.

In continuing to comply with Connecticut General Statutes §1-200, and continuing to fulfill its responsibility to keep the public informed, while at the same time attempting to control excessive expenditures of staff time in the compilation, assembly and distribution of information relating to the operation of the public schools, the Board has enacted the following policy:

Any requested information covered by Section 1-200 that is readily available in the format in which it is requested will be supplied by the Superintendent for inspection or copying by the person or group making the request. A fee of 50 cents per page will be charged for the cost of reproducing requested information.
