Public Records Requests

Public Records Request Process

To request public records from the Shoreline School District, visit:

NextRequest Public Records System

Within five business days of receiving a public record request, the District will:

  1. Acknowledge that the district has received the request and provide a reasonable estimate of the time the district will require to respond to the request; or
  2. Provide the record; or
  3. Deny the public record request with a written statement as to why it is being withheld and a citation of the specific exemption (RCW) that applies.

In the event that the request is unclear, the District will contact the requester for clarification of the records requested. Once clarified, the District will respond in accordance with the guidelines stated above. If the requester fails to clarify the request, the District may consider the request closed.
