• Public records requests

    The Mercer Island School District is committed to public accountability and open government. It is the policy of the district to make available to the public any and all identifiable district records, subject only to exceptions contained by law.

    The Mercer Island School District responds to Requests for Access to Public Records in accordance with state policy in RCW 42.56 and Mercer Island School Board Policy No. 4040. Board policy No. 4040 was adopted in 1987 and revised in 2011.

    In accordance with Mercer Island School Board Policy 1800-OE-9, the district provides a synopsis of the information requested in all public records requests, who requested it, whether they picked up the district’s response, the number of pages provided and an approximation of the cost incurred by the district in fulfilling each individual request to be posted on the district’s website.

    This page is dynamic and could change at any time as information becomes available. ("TBD" means to be determined and "N/A" means the staff cost was less than $150.)
