As a public agency, Palo Alto Unified School District adheres to the California Public Records Act (CPRA) which requires that governmental records shall be disclosed to the public, upon request, unless there is a specific reason not to do so.  Permissible exemptions from disclosure include documents that invade an individual’s right to privacy (e.g., privacy in certain personnel, medical or student records) or hinder the government’s need to perform its assigned functions in a reasonably efficient manner (e.g., maintaining confidentiality of investigative records, official information, records related to pending litigation, and preliminary notes or memoranda).

PRA requests can be e-mailed to publicrecords@pausd.org or mailed to the following mailing address:

I'd like to be sure I understand that when Greg talks about data showing how successful the Solution Teams are, that there is actually no quantitative data or other written information (documentation, report, analysis, evaluation, surveys, communications from students or parents, etc.) about Jordan's experience and results with this Solution Team approach. If there is written data or other written information about the Solution Tetam experience or results, I'd obviously be interested in seeing a copy of it; by this inquiry, I hereby request copies of any such data or documents pursuant to the Public Records Act.Completed  All documents requested were confidential

Survey Data Needed:
• PARC survey results from JLS (2008-date). Also, the PowerPoint presentation of the results for Terman and Jordan is one helpful way to look at the issue, but as we discussed, we’d also like to look at the raw survey data. Perhaps Diana Wilmot could be helpful with getting us this. Let me know.
• PARC survey results for Gunn and Paly since 2008.
• Most recent CHKS survey results. 
Documentation of Bullying Incidents:
• Documents recording, presenting or discussing the number and/or type of bullying incidents reported within the district in the past five years.
District Communications with School Sites about Bullying Prevention, Policies and Procedures: 
• Written communications during the past five years between the district and the school sites (principals, teachers, guidance counselors or other professional staff) regarding anti-bullying policies, programs, trainings, reporting and complaint procedures, interventions in bullying incidents, disciplinary or other corrective measures to be utilized in bullying situations, criteria for when to contact district officials about a bullying situation, and any other matter regarding the subject of bullying policy, trainings and procedures for handling bullying reports and incidents.
