Eastern Suffolk BOCES has a designated Records Access Officer who is responsible for accepting and responding to FOIL requests. To make a request for existing public records, please complete the form below.
When you submit this form, FOIL allows ESBOCES five (5) business days to make the record(s) available, deny access to the record(s), or acknowledge receipt of your request and inform you of the timeframe required to respond to your request. Read the complete FOIL online here.
