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. The Sullivan County School District always works to comply with its Public Records Policy and the Right-to-Know Law. To obtain public records from the Sullivan County School District, please download the "Form" to the left of the web page and fill it out in its entirety. Mail or Email the form to the RTK Officer noted at the bottom of this page. We will work to honor your requests as set forth under the law.

To request information, under the Right-to-Know Law, from the Sullivan County School District, you must download the following PA Standard Right-to-Know Request Form.
The Right-to-Know Law requires that each government agency appoint a RTK (Right-to-Know) Officer.
