Bulletproof shelters for schools (Maryland Department of Education)

Erik Franco filed this request with the Maryland Department of Education of Maryland.
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Erik Franco

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All memos, budgets, proposed budgets, presentations, and emails from the dates 01/01/2012 to 04/09/18 mentioning the use of, spending on, and/or consideration of bulletproof shelters for use in schools in the state.

An example of one such company that produces bulletproof shelters is the company called Shelter in Place (http://shelterinplace.com/pricing), mentioned in this local media report, among others covered in the press in various states: http://abc7ny.com/is-this-bulletproof-school-shelter-the-new-normal/3160640/

I am a member of the press and therefore request that fees be waived.

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 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Dear Mr. Franco-

The Maryland State Department of Education has no information on
bulletproof shelters. This type of item would be purchased by local school
systems if they felt it warranted. Your best bet is to contact local
school systems.
