Public Records Request
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Wisconsin Statutes (sec. 19.31), the Verona Area School District (VASD) will process, produce and respond to public records requests during its operational hours of 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, (excluding District and legal holidays set forth on the current VASD calendar). If records are too large or complex to send via email, there will be a charge at the prevailing federal rate for copy reproduction. You will be contacted with a cost before sending the information, otherwise, responses are typically sent via email. Upon receipt of your request, you will be contacted with an estimate of time when the request may be completed.
For any and all public records requests for transmission of a record, the District will only transmit the record when the custodian receives payment for all costs associated with the record transmission and for all other fees lawfully allowed, unless the District waives any or all of the associated costs or fees. Upon receipt of payment, transmission will occur as soon as practicable and without delay.
The District may adopt additional protocols and procedures to govern the processing of public records requests, including the copying, transmission, and inspection of its records to prevent unnecessary interference with District operations.
In compliance with Wisconsin statutes sec. 19.35(4)(a), public records requests will be filled or denied as soon as practicable and without delay.
To make an Open Records Request to the VASD, and to ensure efficient processing of the public records request, please email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail request to Verona Area School District, ATTN: Records Custodian, 700 N Main St, Verona, WI 53593.
