Public Information Request

  • The Texas Public Information Act gives the public the right to request access to or copies of information maintained by public entities.

    Although the act makes most information maintained by public entities available to the public, some exceptions exist. If an exception might apply and the governmental body wishes to withhold the information, the governmental body must, within 10 business days of receiving the public information request, refer the matter to the Office of the Attorney General for a ruling.

    For detailed information on the act and access to the Public Information Handbook from the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), please click to access the OAG page.

    The following documents are from board policy concerning public information request.

    The public is encouraged to visit the above site and documents when contemplating a request for information from the Gainesville Independent School District. For more information, please email Kay Neu at
