Indiana’s Access to Public Records Act (“APRA”), Indiana Code §5-14-3-1 et seq., provides the framework for requesting information from a governmental agency. Moreover, APRA states that, “it is the public policy of the state that all persons are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those who represent them as public officials and employees.” (Indiana Code §5-14-3-1) However, some public records may not be disclosed under various circumstances, or may be disclosed at the discretion of the agency.
Pursuant to Indiana Code § 5-14-3-3, the Indiana Department of Education REQUIRES ALL RECORDS REQUESTS TO BE MADE IN WRITING. Please submit your request by either email or mail to:
Indiana Department of Education
Office of Legal Affairs
South Tower, Suite 600
115 W. Washington Street
Indianapolis, IN 46204
