Requesting Student Records

Change to records request procedure due to COVID-19:

San Francisco Unified School District schools and facilities continue to be closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The District intends to respond to student record requests as soon as possible, however, there may be some delay in order for a staff member to receive clearance to enter the facility where the paper records are located.

SFUSD staff are able to provide families and legal guardians with the digital portion of the student records in an electronic format.

District schools are receiving mail; however, a parent or student’s legal representative or advocate may wish to email the request for student record and the appropriate FERPA release of information to the school principal.

Parent/legal guardian and student representatives (i.e., attorneys or special education advocates representing the student)

During the school year, a parent or legal guardian can send their request for a copy of their student’s school record (including special education record), or portion of the student’s record, to the principal of the student’s current school or last attended school at SFUSD.  A student’s legal representative or advocate may also request the student’s school record by submitting a FERPA release of information signed by the parent or legal guardian with the record request to the principal.  

During summer break, requests for any portion of a student's cumulative file and/or special education file shall be directed to:

Requesting Public Records

The California Public Records Act (CPRA) requires that governmental records be made accessible to the public upon request, unless otherwise exempted by law.  Within 10 days from receipt of the request, the District will determine whether there are responsive records in whole or in part, and will notify the person making the request of the determination. In certain circumstances, the time limit prescribed in the law may be extended.  The District will notify the person making the request and describe the reasons for the extension and the date on which a determination is expected. 

Please direct all Public Records Act Requests to publicinfo@sfusd.edu. Please include your full name, organization (if applicable), mailing address, phone number, and email.  Requests should include a clear and specific description of the records being sought.  Public Records Act requests may be mailed to:
