Public Data Requests

The Data Practices Act (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13) presumes that all government data are public unless a state or federal law says the data are not public. Government data is a term that means all recorded information a government entity has, including paper and electronic media.

The Data Practices Act also provides that South Washington County Schools (District 833) must keep all government data in a way that makes it easy for you, as a member of the public, to access public data. You have the right to look at (inspect), free of charge, all public data that we keep. You also have the right to get copies of public data. The Data Practices Act allows us to charge for copies. You have the right to look at data, free of charge, before deciding to request copies.

To make a data request please fill out this online form. 

South Washington County Schools will respond to requests as soon as reasonably possible (usually within 30 days).

If you have any additional questions please direct them to the Data Practices Compliance Official, Shelly Schafer, Director of Communications and Community Relations at sschafer@sowashco.org.
