OPRA is a state law enacted to give the public greater access to government records maintained by public agencies in New Jersey. The public has the right under OPRA to examine or obtain copies of those public records that are not subject to exceptions from disclosure. Under OPRA, all levels of New Jersey government are required to produce records, when properly requested. Certain records are considered exceptions. OPRA expands the intent of the Right to Know law by re-defining what records are available to the public, by setting standards for accessing those records, and penalties for failing to disclose them.
Citizens who want to obtain public records of the Gloucester City School District must complete a OPRA request form and file it with the Board Secretary, who has been designated the Custodian of Records for the school district.
