Public Information Requests
The Communications Department handles public information requests for the district. All requests for public information are handled in accordance with the Texas Public Information Act, Texas Government Code §552.001.
Requests must ask for records or information that is already in existence. The Texas Public Information Act does not require the district to create new information, do legal research, or answer questions. In addition, the district is not required to comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis. For detailed information about the Texas Public Information Act, please visit the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) website.
Effective September 1, 2019 - Azle ISD has adopted a single public information request address. Please review the information sheet attached to the "Public Information Request" link (listed below) for detailed information. The district will only respond to public information requests submitted to the designated email or mailing address.
For additional information regarding requests for information, including associated costs, please review Azle ISD Board Policy GBAA and Texas Administrative Code Title 1, Part 3, Chapter 70, Rule §70.3.

Transcripts and Student Records
Student record requests fall under the guidelines set forth by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. See Board Policy FL Series for information regarding student records.
