From: Duanesburg Central School District

Mr. Parker,
After your clarification, and in further review I was only able to
determine that some NYSSBA E-clips contain links to material related to
board elections. Attached are March's E-Clips communication from NYSSBA. I
will additionally respond to this email a second time to include April and
through May 6 which is when we received this request for information. The
NYSSBA clips are all I have in documentation that exists that may contain
board election material. Furthermore I am clarifying that we *do not have
any other communication* related to your request for:

- Any and all documents and communications with BOCES in regards to
school board elections for the past 60 days.
- Any and all documents and communications with NYSSBA in regards to
school board elections for the past 60 days.

This includes "comms with NYSSBA, including but not limited to surveys
which they have requested districts fill out." Our district has not
participated in surveys as mentioned and requested on further review.

This concludes that I have presented you with any information available in
relation to your request for information. Should you wish to appeal this
determination, you may appeal it to the Superintendent of Schools by
submitting a request for such an appeal within thirty (30) days of the date
of this letter.
