The Glynn County Board of Education and Superintendent Howard S. Mann believe strongly in a transparent and open governance system that is responsive to the community. The Glynn County School System strictly adheres to all tenets of Georgia’s Open Records Act and Open Meetings Act.
Open Records Requests
Georgia law states that an agency must produce records responsive to a request within three business days absent exceptional circumstances. If the records cannot be produced within three business days, the agency must inform the requestor, in writing, when the records will be produced, the cost to produce the records (if any), and, if applicable, the specific legal authority exempting the records from disclosure, by Code section, subsection, and paragraph. The agency can only add to or amend this legal authority cited as the basis for exemption only once if such amendment is within five days of discovery of an error.
Open Records Requests must be submitted in writing to:

The Open Meetings Act provides that an agency may not hold a meeting covered under the Act without having provided due notice of the time and place of the meeting, a preliminary agenda of the meeting and the publication of summary and final minutes of the meeting afterwards. Proper notice includes the posting of a written notice at the regular place of meeting at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting and notice to the local legal organ in which sheriff's sales are published and other media who have requested such notices. The Act does not require that actual legal advertisements be taken out in a newspaper nor does it provide for an opportunity for a person to speak during a meeting, although both of these items reflect a better practice in assuring public involvement in their government operations.
