SUSD District Office, schools and most sites are currently closed due to CoVid-19. We will continue to respond promptly to requests, however, there may be longer than usual response times as there may be additional time needed to retrieve records not readily accessible. For payment of public records, during the closures, we request that you use the online payment process which you can link to from the public records landing page as fees for records are due in advance. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through the pandemic.
