Right to Know

Pennsylvania Right-to-Know
As of January 1, 2009, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, under Governor Edward G. Rendell, requires government agencies, including school districts, to comply with the new regulations as set forth by the Right-to-Know Law Act 3 of 2008.  The new law fundamentally changes the way people access public records of their government, and the way government processes those requests.  Plum Borough School District always works to comply with its Public Records Policy and the Right-to-Know Law.  To obtain public records from the Plum Borough School District, please download the form below and fill it out in its entirety. Mail the form to the RTK Officer listed below.  We will work to honor your requests as set forth under the law.
File a Request Form
The Right-to-Know Law requires the Office of Open Records to create a Uniform Request Form that must be accepted by all Commonwealth Agencies. To request information, under the Right-to-Know Law, from Plum Borough School District, please download the attached Right-to-Know Request Form.  

The Commonwealth form is also available at the Office of Open Records website at http://openrecords.state.pa.us/. You may also visit the Plum Borough School District’s Administrative Offices, located at 900 Elicker Road, Plum, PA, to pick up a forms.
