Public Information Request

In accordance with policies GBA and GBAA and the Texas Public Information Act (TPIA, Chapter 552 of the Texas Government Code, the Princeton ISD school District (PISD) makes all of its public records available to citizens.

The TPIA does not require government bodies to create new information, perform legal research or to answer questions. The request must ask for records or information that already in existence.

Note that Princeton ISD's regular business hours are 7:15 am - 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Per Texas Attorney General Opinion OR-2014-13943 (2014), WL 4693043, requests received after the close of business will be considered received as of the next business day.

In order for Princeton ISD to process your Open Records request, it must be in writing, using the Princeton ISD Request for Information Form. We cannot process verbal requests. Your written request should be submitted to Jean Ann Collins, Officer for Public Information.

If Princeton ISD believes fees for your Open Records request will exceed $40, we will provide you with a written estimate of charges. You must respond in writing to the estimate of charges within ten (10) business days, or your Open Records request is deemed automatically withdrawn.
