Communications

From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California's Sunshine Amendment (Cal. Const. Art. I, § 3(b)), I hereby request the following records:

All emails sent by, sent to or cc'd to the Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent from January 1, 2010 to the date this request is received that include ANY of the following keywords (i.e., please conduct five separate keyword searches):

-"1033"
-"grenade"
-"MRAP"
-"mine resistant"
-"armored"

This request comprises the content of any emails that match any of the above keywords, as well as all email metadata and attachments.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

Mr. Musgrave,

These are the two PRA Requests that have been assigned to me. My letters indicate that I have the records and will provide them upon payment of the appropriate fee. I can send both CD’s in one envelope. So, the total amount due is $17.95.

If you believe you have other PRA’s that have not been acknowledged please contact Lillian Hernandez @ pra@lausd.net<mailto:pra@lausd.net>.

Ms. Fludd -

In addition to the two PRA requests you've acknowledged, on September 11 I also submitted to pra@lausd.net a third request for LAUSD superintendent emails. See the September 11, 2014 email below.

Please confirm whether this request has been received and is being processed separately from the two requests for documents from LASPD, or if I can provide any further clarification.

Best,
Shawn

You did not respond to my email below. Kindly let me know if you are still interested in the records.

The District charges $0.25 cents per page of documents produced in response to PRA requests. As indicated below, there are a total of 134 pages of responsive documents. Therefore, the total amount due is $33.30. Please make your check payable to Los Angeles Unified School District/LAUSD and send to my attention. Please include the mailing address to which the documents should be mailed. If you prefer, the documents could be sent to you electronically via dropbox. The same charges still apply. Please note that documents will not be released to you until payment has been received.

Dear Mr. Musgrave:
This is to confirm that we received your attached check no. 389 for $33.30. However, the check was returned by our accounting unit since it was wrongly dated 2014. In consideration of what we assume is an inadvertent and common beginning-of-year error, we are giving you a courtesy waiver of costs for this request. Please let me know if you would like me to return the check to you or simply shred it.
