The Public Information Act (PIA) gives the public the right to request access to government information. The request must ask for information already in existence. The PIA does not require Needville ISD to create new information or perform legal searches.

Public Information Act

Texas Government Code, Chapter 552, provides the public with access to government records, and an officer for public information and/or the officer’s agent may not ask why the records are being requested. All government information is presumed to be available to the public for inspection. Certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of the information. Governmental bodies shall promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory, or by judicial decision, or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought.

Procedures to Request Information:

Submit a request by email, mail, fax, or in person. Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the district to accurately identify and locate the information requested.
