• FOIA Request

    Attorney General Lisa Madigan believes that an open, honest and accountable government, the cornerstone of a democracy, can be achieved only through the free and open exchange of information between government and the public. In Illinois, our most important transparency laws - the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and theOpen Meetings Act (OMA)- endeavor to open the workings of government to the public, shed light on government actions and, in the process, strengthen our democracy.

    In 2009, Attorney General Madigan worked with legislators and open government advocates to draft and pass landmark legislation (Senate Bill 189, Public Act 096-0542) to strengthen the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act to increase the transparency and accountability of governments at all levels.

    On the pages of the Illinois Attorney General's website, you will find detailed information to help to understand and comply with FOIA and OMA.

    The Sherrard School District has appointed Alan Boucher, Superintendent of Schools and Becky Breiby, Administrative Secretary to serve as the district's FOIA Officers.  Following is contact information for both of them.
