Public Information Request

Public Information Requests

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 TEA to create new information, perform legal searches, or answer general questions.

During the most recent Legislative Session, the Texas Government Code was amended in a manner that allows Districts to designate a single electronic mail address and a single mailing address for receiving written requests for public information. The new law went into effect on September 1, 2019, and applies only to PIA requests received on or after this date.

Groesbeck I.S.D. will only respond to requests for information sent to the designated email, mailing address, or hand-delivered. Groesbeck I.S.D. is not required to respond to written requests for public information submitted by email or mail to somewhere other than one of the contacts listed below unless the request is delivered by hand, which is also permitted by the statute. 

Requests must be made using the following Public Information Request Form

How to Request Pub­lic Information

Requesting public information is simple. Here is how to make a successful Public Information Act (PIA) request.

A public information request must be in writing to the governmental body you believe maintains the documents.  However, your written request needs to be for information already in existence. A governmental body is not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or create new information in response to your public information request.
