Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

Freedom of Information requests may be submitted to the District 65 FOIA Officer by completing the FOIA Request Form submitting it via email or in person at 1500 McDaniel Avenue, Evanston.

The Freedom of Information Officer shall approve all requests for public records unless:

  • The requested material does not exist;
  • The requested material is exempt from inspection and copying by the Freedom of Information Act;  or
