The Public Has The Right To Know

FOIA Every District is a leading online resource for citizens seeking information about how to gain access to public knowledge from government agencies and public institutions. This toolkit provides a comprehensive database of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request templates for all 50 states.

Why FOIA Your District? 


Parents have a vested interest in your children's education, and it is essential to have a clear understanding of what is going on and being taught in your local school. By submitting a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to their school district, parents can gain access to curriculum, textbooks, and other educational materials. You can also gain access to communication between teachers, staff, and other public school entities. This information is crucial in ensuring that students are receiving a high-quality education that aligns with the values and beliefs of your family. Additionally, FOIA requests can uncover information about teacher training and qualifications, as well as any potential conflicts of interest that may exist within the school system. For example, you can find out if Planned Parenthood has partnered with your district to write Sex Ed curriculum. By utilizing FOIA to gain access to this information, parents can hold their local school district accountable and advocate for the best possible education for their children.
