Important Information about Records Requests

  • Please be specific. If what information is requested is unclear to the district, the district may ask the requestor to clarify the request. If a large amount of information has been requested, the district may discuss with the requestor how the scope of the request might be narrowed.


    In responding to requests, the District is not required to:

    • Prepare or create new information

    • Perform general or legal research


Timing and Deadlines

  • As provided by the Texas Public Information Act, Denton ISD will provide the requested information promptly. Depending upon the complexity of the request and volume of other pending requests, this is typically 10 business days. If we are unable to complete your request within 10 business days, we will notify you of the date we expect to complete your request. If your request includes information that we believe is confidential or excepted from release, we will submit a request for an opinion to the Texas Attorney General to determine whether the requested information may be released or must be withheld.
