Open Records Policy 218.00
Johnson County Community College
Series: 200 Administrative Services
Section: Records

Cross-Reference: Open Records Operating Procedure 218.01

Applicability: This Policy applies to all Johnson County Community College (“JCCC” or the “College”) Public Records.

Purpose: The purpose of this Policy is to ensure compliance with K.S.A. 45-215 et. seq. which provides that Public Records are open for inspection by any person, except those records specifically exempted from disclosure.


“Public Records” are as defined by K.S.A. 45-217 but generally include any recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, which are made, maintained by or in the possession of the College and are not exempt from disclosure.


The Kansas Open Records Act (“KORA”) generally grants any person the right to inspect and obtain copies of Public Records created or maintained by public agencies in Kansas. JCCC is considered a public agency under KORA.

To the extent required by KORA, the College will provide access to Public Records, provide assistance and information upon request, protect Public Records from damage and disorganization, prevent excessive disruption of the College's essential functions, and ensure efficient and timely action in response to requests for inspection of Public Records.
