Public Records Requests

Public Records Requests

Members of the public are welcome to request access to or copies of public records from the Compton Community College District. All requests should be directed to the Office of the President/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in accordance with AR 3300. To ensure a smooth process, please make requests as far in advance as possible. This allows our staff adequate time to assemble the necessary records and identify any that may be exempt from disclosure.

How to make a request for public records

  1. Requests should be made by mail or in person to the President/CEO. Send a letter specifying the type of records you are requesting to:
          President/CEO Office
          Administration Building
          Compton College
          1111 E. Artesia Blvd.
          Compton, CA 90221
          To make an appointment for an in-person request, call 310-900-1600, ext. 2003.

  2. For questions about what records can be requested, contact the Director of Purchasing and Auxiliary Services, Reuben James, via email or call 310-900-1600, ext. 2110.

  3. Within (10) ten days of receiving your request, the President/CEO or their designee will determine whether the records can be produced and will communicate the determination. The response will indicate if additional time is needed, based on the complexity of the request and the availability of responsive documents.

  4. Members of the public will receive assistance in identifying records or information relevant to their request. This support includes: the information technology and physical location in which the records exist; practical suggestions for overcoming denial of access to the records or information; and the estimated date and time for when the records will be made available.

  5. If the request requires inspection of documents, the President/CEO or their designee will schedule an appointment with the soonest available time and date.
Please note that some records are not available for review because they are confidential pursuant to the Public Records Act or other statutes. Requesters will be notified if the requested information falls in this category. For more information about the most common exemptions, click here.
