Right to Know


The Mount Pleasant Area School District is in compliance with the new Right to Know law enacted in Pennsylvania on January 1, 2009.  This law enables the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records to serve as a resource for citizens, public officials and members of the media in obtaining public records.


An individual or designee of a group may submit their Right to Know request by completing the approved form. 

The requestor would submit it to the District's Open Records Officer.  Requestors must provide their name, address, and specific detail so the district can properly identify the information being requested.  Requests need not include an explanation of why the information is being sought or the intended use of the information unless required by law.


Right to Know Requests can be hand-delivered, mailed, or emailed to the District's Open Records Officer:

Requests will be reviewed and a response will be provided in accordance with the law, board policy and administrative regulations.
