Ross Montessori complies with the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA). Information attainable by CORA requests includes any writing made, kept, or maintained by individuals at Ross Montessori School, emails, and records stored in digital filing systems, computers, or servers.
School records are public unless otherwise protected and shall be available within three business days from the initial request. If the record exists but cannot be gathered within three days, the delivery date shall be extended an additional seven working days. The requestor shall be notified of the extension within the first three days of receiving the request. Format requests will be considered, although digital via e-mail is the default method.
There is no duty to create that public record if the records do not exist. If the School agrees to generate the requested report and requires additional manpower to format or create it, specific fees may apply. Costs associated with fulfilling the request will be communicated to the requestor before data collection. All fees must be paid in full before completing the records request with the Fee Schedule designated as follows: Employee preparation time: $30/hour. Payment shall be made in full before records are provided to the requesting party.
