To Whom It May Concern:

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

I ask that all fees be waived as this information is in the public interest. In the event that the district chooses 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 the district choose to deny access to or redact records responsive to this request, I ask that the district provides a detailed explanation of its reasoning--as required by law--citing the specific statutes and case law on which each decision is based.
