PA Right to Know (RTK) Act Information

The Community Academy of Philadelphia, CS, will provide all public information in a timely manner in accordance with the PA Right to Know Act (RTK). This page is designed to help you in exercising your right to know as a convenience, and we try our best to place the most up-to-date and accurate information, as possible; however, the documents accumulated on this page have been posted by staff and may not be the most accurate or up-to-date. If you require such legal accuracy, please make a RTK request. Most records are covered by the Act; however, the RTK does exclude some 30 pieces of personal information, such as social security numbers, birth dates, etc.; if a document contains these pieces of information, they will be redacted (blacked out). Also, a Commonwealth Court judge has stayed the release of the home addresses and phone numbers of all school employees for their safety (see notice in "Quick Links" below). All student information is covered by federal law, which supersedes state law; therefore, student records and information are covered under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99. , and some medical records are covered under HIPPA.
