To Whom It May Concern:

* The budget for mental health services for each year beginning in 2014 through the present.

* Any reports, logs, or other data that tracks the number of mental-health related accommodations requested each school year, as well as the outcomes of those accommodation requests. Please provide records beginning in 2014 through the present.

* Any and all policies related to mental health, including but not limited to policies governing leaves of absence (voluntary and involuntary) for students, as well as any logs or reports that note the voluntary and involuntary leaves of absences students have taken each year since 2014.

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.

Dear Ms. Bowen:

This email acknowledges receipt by Edinboro University of Pennsylvania of your written request for records under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law (65 P. S. ยงยง 67.101 et seq.,) ("RTKL"). Your request was received by our Right to Know Law Office on February 12, 2020. Therefore, under the RTKL, a written response to your request is due on or before February 19, 2020. This response is provided pursuant to the RTKL.

You requested "...the following records:

* Any annual, quarterly or semesterly logs or reports that detail how often various school therapy services are provided to students. Please provide logs from the academic year beginning in 2014 through the present.

* Any reports, logs, or other data that tracks average wait times for students who have sought help for mental health issues. Please provide logs from the academic year beginning in 2014 through the present.

You are hereby notified that this agency will require an additional thirty (30) calendar days in which to provide a final written response to your request. This is pursuant to section 902(a), therefore, you should receive a response from the University on or before February 7, 2020. The reason for the extension request is as follows:

1. a timely response to the request for access cannot be accomplished due to staffing limitations; and
2. a legal review is necessary to determine whether the records, if any, are subject to access under the RTKL.

If you have any questions regarding this response, please contact me at your convenience.

Sincerely,
