Webinar Presenters:
William B. Tunick, Shareholder; and Reid D. Shannon, Associate; Dannis Woliver Kelley

Description:
District officials use email and text messages every day to communicate about district business. Do you know if your electronic communications are subject to disclosure under the California Public Records Act (CPRA)?

Here, attorneys from Dannis Woliver Kelley provide a short review of the recent California Supreme Court decision about electronic communications subject to disclosure under the CPRA, including how your district can respond to such records requests; what your district can do to minimize the burden in responding; and what general strategies your district can use to respond (whether or not a request seeks records from a private account).

Listen as William B. Tunick and Reid D. Shannon outline your district's next steps, including policy development and staff training required with respect to records requests.
