CORA (Open Records) Requests
In accordance with the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA), Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight is happy to assist with requests for public records. Public records open to inspection under CORA include books, papers, maps, photographs, electronic mail, and other written materials. In order to be considered a public record, it must be maintained by the District.
Under CORA, the District has three business days (not including the date the request is received) to make the record available for review to the requestor. Sometimes an extension is necessary if the requested information will take longer than three days to complete. In this case, the requestor would be notified of the request for an extension. If citizens wish to view the public records without receiving a copy there is no charge. There will be a $.25 per page charge for copying records unless the record is available electronically. Please keep in mind not all records are available electronically. In addition, charges may be added for the cost of producing the requested information, up to a maximum of $30/hour, as allowed by statute.
Requests should be as detailed as possible including date, type of record, etc.
To request a public record under CORA, contact Joanne Vergunst, Assistant Superintendent of Business and Auxiliary Services in writing by mail or email.
