Requests and access under the Right-to-Know (Open Record) Law shall be governed by the law itself (Act 3 of 2008), as well as BLaST Intermediate Unit’s board policy (PDF) regarding Public Information and Right-to-Know.


To request information from BLaST IU 17 please use the Standard Right to Know request form prescribed by the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records. Please note that phone requests will not be accepted.

Associated Fees

Copying/Duplicating fees and postage costs of $.25 per photocopy will be assessed on the Requester, as allowed by Section 1307 of Act 3 (a “photocopy” is either a single-sided copy or one side of a double-sided black-and-white copy of a standard 8.5″ x 11″ page). BLaST shall use the fee schedule established by the PA Office of Open Records to determine other costs.

Requester shall pay all fees prior to BLaST IU 17 releasing them to Requester. Requester’s refusal to pay these fees will result in BLaST making them available for review only.
