The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act of 1967 requires organizations, such as public school districts, to provide access to public records. Public records, as defined by The Arkansas Freedom of Information Handbook, include “writings, recorded sounds, films, tapes, electronic or computer-based information, or data compilations in any medium [...] that is wholly or partially supported by public funds or expending public funds” (Arkansas Attorney General, 2017).

The North Little Rock School District will comply with the law and in the spirit of transparency. Any Arkansas citizen may request to inspect or copy documents that are part of the public record as aforementioned. Please remember that not all information is available for disclosure, such as emergency and security measures, medical and education records, personal contact information, unpublished memoranda, and open investigations. The District has a responsibility to maintain the privacy of students and employees.

You may submit a request in one of two ways:

1.  Email: barnesd@nlrsd.org

2.   Mail: Dustin Barnes, Communications Coordinator, North Little Rock School District, 2400 Willow Street, North Little Rock, AR 72114
