Florida Book Challenges: Hamilton County School District

Adam Steinbaugh filed this request with the Hamilton County School District of Hamilton County, FL.

It is a clone of this request.



From: Adam Steinbaugh

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Florida Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

1. A copy of any records generated pursuant to any policy concerning challenges to curricular, instructional, or library materials. This request is limited to records generated as a result of any complaint or challenge initiated on or after January 1, 2021.

2. A copy of any complaints (including informal complaints), and any records generated as a result of the complaints, where the complaint led to a change in status of any book or material in a library that serves high school students. (In other words, this request does not seek records concerning any library that serves only elementary or middle school students.)

3. A copy of any current policy concerning challenges to curricular, instructional, or library materials.

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.
