Public Record Requests
How to request public records
Submit your request to the Superintendent's Office using the form below at 1255 Hemlock Ave., Coos Bay, OR 97420. Please be as specific as possible about the records you are seeking. if you are unsure what records exist, feel free to call or email to discuss your request. Please specify if you would like to receive electronic or physical copies. The CBSD tries to provide the public with records at no cost when possible. However, the district, as allowed by state law, reserves the right to charge for requests that are time-consuming or require large-scale printing. There may be charges for staff time and physical copies, depending on the format or volume of your request.
What Happens Next
You will receive a confirmation email that we have received your public records request form. The Superintendent's Office will determine what records exist that are responsive to your request and determine whether is is necessary to charge to collect them and review for confidential information.
In accordance with state law, you will be provided an estimate of the time needed to respond and a written cost estimate (if warranted), no later than five business days after receiving your request.
Most requests can be completed in a matter of days, but more complex requests can take several weeks, or in some cases, even longer. If it will take longer than fifteen working days to complete your request and provide records, you will be notified and you will receive regular updates.
