From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Alaska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) A list of all website names and/or URLs that are blacklisted/blocked by the district's Gaggle web-filtering software.

2) A list of all website names and/or URLs that the district has manually whitelisted/allowed access to upon request through the Gaggle web-filtering software.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest. In the event that you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the costs, including the hourly wages of any personnel assigned to process the request and estimates of how many hours the request will take them to process.

Should you choose to deny access to or redact records responsive to this request, I ask that you provide a detailed explanation of your reasoning--as required by law--citing the specific statutes and case law on which each decision is based.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Todd Feathers

From: Anchorage School District

The District must make records available for inspection and copying in the format in which they are maintained. The District is not required to compile or summarize its records in response to a request for public records. Further, the District is not required to manipulate its data to create new records in response to a request for public records. (2 AAC 96.210)

2 AAC 96.240 provides that agencies may charge a fee for providing copies of public records. As such, the District has determined the following fees will apply; Paper and Faxed Copies - $0.35 per page.

The District follows 2 AAC 96.325 which provides the required response time limits for furnishing all records that may be disclosed. Typically, responses will be received within ten (10) business days. For extensive records requests (those exceeding five (5) personnel hours to search for and duplicate records), the District will require the requester pay the personnel costs necessary to complete the research, review, and duplication of records. The District will provide an invoice based on the estimated costs to fulfill the request. The requestor will have the opportunity to pay the fee and proceed, to amend the request, or to cancel the request.
