The Illinois Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a state law that provides the public with the right to gain access to government documents and records.

Under FOIA, a person may ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject, and the public body must provide those records unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure.

As a public body, District 401 is subject to FOIA. Full access to our nonexempt public records is available to any person, group, association, corporation, firm, partnership or organization as provided under FOIA and under Board Policy 2:250.
