Public Records Request

  • The public records of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public School System are governed by the state of North Carolina's Public Records Act, General Statute 132. A “public record” means any record created or received by the Board or its employees. An information request is exclusively for the purpose of obtaining answers to questions. A public agency is not required to respond to records requests by creating or compiling a record that does not exist. 

    A public records request can be submitted through the NextRequest portal linked below. To submit a records request by email or phone, please reach out to Joel Ferdon, Public Records Officer, at or 980-343-0126.
