Right to Know Requests
Special Message Regarding Right to Know Requests
Lampeter-Strasburg School District is currently closed consistent with the Governor’s Emergency Declaration issued in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. During this mandated closure, Lampeter-Strasburg School District may not be able to respond to requests for public records under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law. The Office of Open Records (OOR) has advised that when a public entity is closed, that day is not a “business day” and does not count toward the five business days referenced in Section 901 of the RTKL, which governs the time period under which an agency must respond to a request. Consequently, Lampeter-Strasburg School District will process requests once it reopens. Further, unless you have an urgent need to access public records, please do not file any new RTKL requests at this time. If submitting a request is necessary, please seek copies of records (preferably electronic) rather than in-person inspection. In-person inspection of records will not be possible during the current closure. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.
Right-to-Know Requests should be submitted on the standard Right-to-Know Request form and mailed, e-mailed (kevin_peart@L-Spioneers.org), or faxed (717-464-4699) to the Right-to-Know Officer, Dr. Kevin S. Peart, Superintendent, Lampeter-Strasburg School District, P.O. Box 428, Lampeter, Pennsylvania 17537.
Individuals may challenge denials of any request by filing an appeal within fifteen (15) business days of receipt of a determination from the School District. A written appeal must be mailed or delivered to the attention of the Executive Director, Office of Open Records, Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, Fourth Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120.
