The Massachusetts Public Records Law (Public Records Law) and its Regulations provide that each person has a right of access to public information. In accordance with the amended state public records law, Chapter 121 of the Acts of 2016, the Holyoke Public School District has designated the Executive Assistant to the Receiver/Superintendent as the person responsible for responding to public records requests.
Please contact the Records Access Officer in writing regarding public records requests for documents pursuant to A Guide to the Massachusetts Public Records Law (pdf.), as published by William Francis Galvin, Secretary of the Commonwealth. Records will generally be provided in electronic format within 10 business days barring an exception. In this case, the Records Access Officer will contact the requestor with an explanation for the delay and a good faith estimate of any fees that may be charged for the production of records and a reasonable time frame for when the records will be provided, which generally will not exceed 25 business days from the initial request.
