On June 3, 2016, Governor Baker signed An Act to Improve Public Records into law. Many of the provisions in the new law will take effect on January 1, 2017. Part of the new law requires school districts to identify the main contact (identified in the law as a Records Access Officer or RAO) for the public to use when making a request to access public records.
The contact information for the RAO must be posted conspicuously, including on the agency's or municipality's website, if available.
The RAO has a duty to:
- Coordinate the agency's or municipality's response to requests for access to public records;
- Assist individuals seeking public records in identifying the records requested;
- Assist the custodian of records in preserving public records; and
- Prepare guidelines that enable requestors to make informed requests.
The Records Access Officer for the Holliston Public Schools is Bradford L. Jackson, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools. Requests for Public Records should be made in writing and sent to Dr. Jackson either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or via US Mail to:
