Requesting Public Records  

Access to public records is provided in compliance with applicable laws. While the state encourages disclosure of public records, state law does allow for some information to be withheld.

Before starting a search for accessible public records, please review the Public Records section of the Revised Code of Washington, Chapters 42.56.001 through 42.56.903. Detailed information on the state Public Records Act (RCW 42.56) is also available at the Office of the Attorney General.

We are committed to responding to your request for public information in a timely manner. Within five business days (excluding holidays) of receipt of a public records request, the District will do one or more of the following: 
  • Make the requested records available for inspection and copying; or
  • Acknowledge receipt of the request and provide a reasonable estimate of when the records will be available; or
  • If the request is unclear or does not sufficiently identify the requested records, contact the requestor for clarification; or
  • Deny the request in accordance with Washington law.  
If you are interested in filing a public records request with the Lake Stevens School District, please complete the Request for Public Records Form. Please note there is a fifteen cents ($.15) per page charge for a standard black and white photocopy of a requested record as a reasonable charge for copies per RCW 42.56.120.

Please return your request to the Public Records Officer via fax to 425-335-1549; or mail or deliver to 12309 22nd Street NE, Lake Stevens, WA 98258.
