Right to Know

Advisory regarding RTKL requests

Due to the PA Governor's official emergency declaration (March 6 disaster emergency declaration) our school district is currently closed for business.

The Office of Open Records encourages both requesters and agencies to be considerate and patient while working with each other, especially during the current emergency.

Requesters: Unless you have an urgent need to access records, please do not file any new Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) requests at this time. Additionally, in most cases, inspecting records will not be possible during the emergency.

If you have an emergency RTK request, please submit it electronically to OROfficer@qcsd.org. We do not have access to our postal mail at this time.

Requests for Access to Public Records

QUAKERTOWN COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
100 Commerce Drive, Quakertown, PA 18951
Requests for Access to Public Records

Any requester seeking access to or duplication of a public record must submit a written request addressed to the Open Records Officer. The written request must identify or describe the public record with sufficient specificity to allow the district to determine which record is being requested, and the name and address to which the district should send its response.

The district may, in its sole discretion, honor verbal requests for public records in cases where access can be allowed immediately. However, a verbal request shall not be considered an official request requiring a district response under this policy.

The district encourages a requester to complete the district's Right-to-Know Request Form when submitting a written request. Copies of that form may be obtained at the district administrative offices during regular business hours or downloaded from the link below.

Any requester may submit a Right-to-Know Form in the following manner:

In person: At the District Services Center 100 Commerce Drive, Quakertown, PA 18951 on any business day during the regular business hours.

Regular mail: Sent to the attention of: Terry San Angelo, Open Records Officer, Quakertown Community School District, District Services Center, 100 Commerce Drive, Quakertown, PA 18951.

Facsimile: Sent to the attention of the Open Records Officer at the following facsimile number: 215-529-2042. A written request sent via facsimile will not be considered submitted until a complete and legible copy of the facsimile is received by the person to whom it is addressed.

E-mail: Sent, as a completed and signed scanned attachment, to the attention of the Open Records Office at OROfficer@qcsd.org. An e-mail will not be considered submitted until a complete accessible copy of that e-mail is received and opened by the person to whom it is addressed.
