Freedom of Information Act Requests

Under the Freedom of Information Act of 1984, public bodies are required to make available all public records to citizens wishing to inspect and copy them. School districts and Special Education Cooperatives are public bodies.

Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative is happy to comply with the terms of this public Act and strives to make public information accessible to those who are interested. You are free to call administration 331-228-4873 to request information or consult Board policy 2:250 on the Board section of the website (mvse.org).

If you would like to make a formal Freedom of Information Act request, please write a letter requesting your information and be sure to include your name, address, and phone number(s). Also, identify if the request is for a commercial purpose or if you are requesting a fee waiver.

Please be as specific as possible to the document(s) you are requesting. Public bodies are not responsible for compiling information or creating documents as a response to a Freedom of Information Act request if they don't exist.

Fees

A fee of 15 cents per page (over the first 50 pages) may be charged for copying black and white documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

Who to Contact

Individuals interested in obtaining public information from Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative are asked to contact or send their requests to FOIA Officer, at the Mid-Valley Administration Office at 1304 Ronzheimer Avenue, St. Charles, IL 60174.
