To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Iowa Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Hi:

Your original request must of gone to a wrong email address or something, I’ve searched my account and do not see this. However, I’ve forwarded your request to our curriculum coordinator who handles this topic and I will send along the material once I hear from her.
