California Public Records Act Requests

  • Under the California Public Records Act (California Government Code section 6250 et seq.), any person can request records in the possession of a local government agency or special district. Once the records are requested, the organization has 10 days to make a determination whether there are responsive records and make them available to the requesting party in a reasonable amount of time.

    Records that are exempt from the California Public Records Act include, but are not limited to: student information, personnel records, negotiation strategies, drafts and records that are part of the deliberative process.

    In the West Contra Costa Unified School District, public records should be directed to the Communications Office. You can email your request or send it via regular post to:

    Communications Office
    West Contra Costa Unified School District
    1108 Bissell Ave.
    Richmond, CA 94801
    Attention: Public Records
