Requests for Information

  • All requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) must be submitted in writing to the Clover School District's Public Information Officer. Requests may be made through US Mail or email. 

    The district has a practice of charging individuals or entities requesting information FOIA “the actual cost of searching for or making copies of records,” as permitted pursuant to S. C. Code Section 30-4-30(b).

    After receiving a written request for information under the FOIA, the district will provide the most reasonable available estimate of costs involved in responding to the request. An advance deposit of 25% the estimated cost will be required before the district can begin the process. If deposit is not received within 30 days of sending the determination letter, the request will be considered closed.
    Fee Structure:
    • $0.10 per page copied
    • Lowest hourly rate of available employee with necessary skills to prepare/review documents.
    • The district estimates an average of two minutes of review time per email/document.
