Public Information Act

Open government is the cornerstone of a free society.  Texarkana ISD, as a local government entity, is subject to the requirements of the Texas Public Information Act.  Texas law gives you the right to access government records and government officials may not ask why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public. Certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of information. Governmental bodies shall promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought. Charges will be applied as provided by Board Policy.
