Public Records Request Process
Kent School District (KSD) maintains records for the schools within the district. With written authorization, the district can provide student records and other public documents.
Some records are exempt from disclosure. For more information, please review common exemptions cited with the release of public records.
Make a Student Records Request
Request transcripts, diplomas, report cards, and all other student records from the school the student last attended.
Special Education Records
Requests for special education records should be made to SpecialEdRecords@kent.k12.wa.us.
Make a Public Records Request
If you would like to request records other than student records, you may do so by completing a Public Records Request Form and returning it electronically or through the mail.
Complete the form electronically and email it to Gayla O’Donnell at Gayla.O'Donnell@kent.k12.wa.us.
Mail a hard copy of the completed form to the following address:
Kent School District

The District may:
- Provide the records
- Forward the records request to the appropriate department
- Acknowledge the receipt of the request and provide a timeline for delivery
- Ask for clarification
- Deny the request with a statement as to why the records are being withheld along with a citation of the appropriate RCW.
