TexasISD "Events and Opportunities"

Eichelbaum Wardell Hansen Powell & Mehl, P.C.

Not for the faint of heart, we will explore the complexities of fulfilling TPIA requests. This webinar is for those who possess a working understanding of the PIA. We'll dig into complex information requests including those asking for information not stereo-typically considered “school records” such as administer or board member personal emails and text messages.

This webinar session is being presented by April Philley, a former Assistant Attorney General, who can provide first-hand advice and practical tips – everything you ever wanted to know about the TPIA.

 

Topics:

  • What exactly is the Public Information Act?
  • What is a valid request for information?
  • Rules and deadlines for responding to requests
  • What can I charge requestors for?
  • How to redact information without a ruling from the AG
  • Requesting an Attorney General opinion
  • What happens when you request an opinion from the AG
  • Common exceptions to the Public Information Act
  • When third party notifications are required
