Freedom of Information Act

Illinois FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) Requests

In compliance with State Law (5 ILCS 140/4), each school district is required to post specific information regarding the school district as part of FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requirements. Such information is contained in documents listed in the column on the right side of this page. If the information you are seeking is not found in these or other documents posted on this website, you may request copies of existing documents using the FOIA Request to Inspect Records.

District 108's School Board Policy 2:250 explains the access to District Public Records.  Director of Human Resources Joe Franklin serves as the District 108 FOIA compliance officer.

Details regarding the Illinois Freedom of Information Act provisions may be found in the Guide to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, prepared by the Office of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in 2004.

New provisions to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1), mandated by Senate Bill 189, Public Act 096-0542, went into effect as of January 1, 2010. For further information, please visit the website of the Illinois Attorney General at
