Freedom of Information Act Requests

  • This process outlines the steps for those seeking to submit Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to Lakeville Area Schools. Please follow these guidelines to ensure a smooth and efficient request process.

    Before submitting a FOIA request, please identify the specific information you are seeking. Be as clear and specific as possible to help expedite the process. A written request should include your full name, contact information (address, phone number, and email), and a clear and detailed description of the information you are requesting. Submit your FOIA request using the District's request form. 

    Upon receiving your request, the District will send you a confirmation email or letter within three business days. Please note that FOIA requests may take up to 10 business days to process from the date of confirmation receipt. Complex requests may require additional time, and you will be notified accordingly.

    Data considered private under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act will be redacted from all data requested.

    Depending on the nature of your request, a fee may be associated with processing. You will be informed of any applicable fees during the confirmation of receipt. Processing will begin upon receipt of payment, if required.

    Once the FOIA request has been processed, you will be notified of the outcome. If the information is approved for release, it will be provided to you in the agreed-upon format.
