Under the FOIL law, all records* (with certain limitations) produced
and/or maintained by the school district are considered public documents
and subject to the freedom of information requests.
The most common FOIL requests include requests for contracts between the
district and third party vendors, collective bargaining agreements,
financial information and records of Board of Education action.
Much of this information is already available on the District's Board Docs
site. For help navigating the Board Docs site, or accessing information
on the site you may contact Rick McCormack, District Clerk via email or at (914) 665-5235.
FOIL request may be submitted online, using the Freedom of Information
request form. Request may also be submitted in writing. You must provide
your name, address, telephone number and a brief description of the
records being sought.
Requests should be sent to:
Richard P. McCormack, Records Access Officer
165 N. Columbus Avenue
Mount Vernon, NY 10553
* Most of the exceptions are based upon common sense and the
potential for harm that would arise by means of disclosure. If
disclosure of records would be damaging to an individual or preclude a
government agency from carrying out its duties, it is likely that some
aspects of the records may be withheld.
