Freedom of Information Law

The New York State Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) allows members of the public to access certain records of governmental agencies. FOIL provides a process for the review and copying of an agency’s records. 

For access to Sauquoit Valley Central School District records under the NYS Freedom of Information Law, please contact the District’s Record Access Officer by mail or e-mail.

Please include the words “FOIL Request” in the subject of the email.

Requests should state that information is being sought under the Freedom of Information Law and provide a brief description of the public records requested. Please be as specific as possible (e.g. relevant dates, names, descriptions, etc.).

The District’s Records Access Officer will acknowledge receipt of any FOIL requests within five business days. The nature of the request will determine how quickly the information can be provided. To appeal a denial of access to records, contact Superintendent of Schools David Stayton by email at

The fee associated with any FOIL request is 25 cents per copied page. Electronic transfers of information are not subject to this fee, but are not always available depending on the request.

There are limitations to FOIL requests:

  •  The District is not required to create a new record or report or gather new information for a FOIL request.

  •  Private, personnel information and school records are not "FOILable".

  •  FOILs are meant to provide public information when requested.

For more information regarding Sauquoit Valley Central School District records requests, contact the Record Access Officer at 315-839-6311.
