Freedom of Information Law (FOIL)

    Welcome to the Hyde Park Central School District's Freedom of Information Law Resource page.
    The Freedom of Information Law reaffirms your right to know how your government agency operates.  This applies to Public School Districts.  It provides rights of access to records reflective of governmental (District) decisions and policies.  Generally, the law applies to existing public records. 
    Limitations to FOIL requests:
    1.  The District is not required to create a new record or report or gather new information for a FOIL request. 
    2.  Private, personnel information and school records are not "FOILable"
    3.  FOILs are meant to provide public information when requested.
    FOILs requests must be written requests.  You can send a FOIL request by e-mail to: hpcsdFOIL@HPCSD.ORG
