The Freedom of Information Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) sets out the privacy rights of individuals as they relate to the public sector. The School District is required to comply with this legislation and must protect the personal information in its custody and/or control from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, and disposal. Examples of personal information include name, email, address, photos, health information, student records, personal opinions, and more.
The right to access information in the custody and control of the School District is also governed by the legislation. If information about the business and activities of the School District is not publicly available, a "Request for Information" must be submitted to the FIPPA Officer (Secretary Treasurer) via the Request for Access to Records Form. For more information, please review the district policy for Access to Information and Protection of Privacy and Personal Information.
Consistent with its obligations under the Freedom of Information and Protection of
Privacy Act (“FIPPA”), the
School District supports openness and transparency with its stakeholders and
members of the community. The following categories of records have been
established by the School District under section 71(1) of the FIPPA as appropriate for disclosure to the public
without the need to file an access request.
