Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] Requests

Under the Freedom of Information Act of 1984, public bodies are required to make available all public records to citizens wishing to inspect and copy them. School districts are public bodies.

Central School District is happy to comply with the terms of this public Act and strives to make public information accessible to those who are interested. You are free to call Central School District’s administration at (847) 464-6005 to request information about this process.

Pursuant to Board Policy 2:250, all FOIA requests must be made in writing. To file a formal Freedom of Information Act request, please click here for a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA) form or write a letter requesting your information and be sure to include your name, address, and phone number(s).

Please be as specific as possible as to the document(s) you are requesting. Public bodies are not responsible for compiling information or creating documents as a response to a Freedom of Information Act request.


A fee of 5 cents per page may be charged for copying documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.
