What is a public record?
The Florida Public Records Law authorizes the public to inspect, photograph and copy public records maintained by the Duval County School District. Section 119.011(12), Florida Statutes, defines "public records" to include: all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, data processing software, or other material, regardless of the physical form, characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any agency. Student records are protected by FERPA and Florida Statute §1002.221. If you are requesting student records, please click here to be directed to the appropriate department.
