Non-discrimination policies

From: Sean Glover

Good morning,

Requests for official public records made under South Carolina’s Freedom of
Information Act are handled through the Richland Two District Office.
Please submit your request in writing to to:

Libby Roof, Chief Communications Officer

FOIA provides the public with access to existing non-exempt, official
records of a public agency, but does not require the district to generate
or create records. Certain categories of documents may be withheld, such as
personnel records; student records; test and examinations used to evaluate
student or employee performance; records relating to the security of
students, staff and property; records protected from disclosure under
attorney-client privileges; executive session materials, etc.

All requests for documents are subject to charges based upon but not
limited to staff time and the cost of copying and printing materials.

Thanks and have a great day.
