It is the policy of the Early Learning Coalition of Escambia County to comply with Florida’s public records law and state retention schedules for public records, including electronic mail (e-mail). Florida’s public records law, listed in Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, states: “It is the policy of this state that all state, county, and municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency.”

 

Procedure for Requesting Records:  The full Coalition policy for public records, Request for Public Records Policy and Procedure, ELCEC 1401.1C, is available in our Administrative Office, and on our website, www.elcescambia.org.  Please make your request in writing by completing the Public Records Request Form, ELCEC 1401.3A.  All public records requests must be provided to the Executive Assistant of the Coalition who is also the Records Custodian.  Per Chapter 119, F.S., the Coalition has up to five (5) business days to complete the public records request. Public records which are exempt from the provisions of section 119.07(1), F.S. will be available only as specified by applicable state and federal laws and rules.

 

Public records will be available for inspection or copying during reasonable times and under reasonable conditions between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. until noon on Friday, excluding published Coalition holidays.
