Freedom of Information Requests, sometimes called Open Records requests or Public Information Act requests, are handled by the Communications Department. The department will forward all requests to the appropriate staff member for processing. HEB ISD works to meet information requests in compliance with state and federal laws. To the extent possible, requests are handled in the order they are received. By law, HEB ISD has 10 business days to determine whether or not to seek an Attorney General's ruling regarding information that may be exempt from public disclosure.
The following charges are in accordance with Tex. Gov’t Code 552.262, Charges for Public Information.
