To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:
A spreadsheet of all public high schools in the state of Missouri that offer a journalism course during the current academic year (2019-2020).
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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Dear Ms. Gagosz:
On January 6 and January 9, 2020, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) received your identical Sunshine Law requests for public records. Your specific request is as follows: "[a] spreadsheet of all public high schools in the state of Missouri that offer a journalism course during the current academic year (2019-2020)."
It may be helpful to know that pursuant to Missouri's Open Meetings and Records Law, public governmental bodies have three business days to respond to a request (see, § 610.023.3, RSMo).
With respect to your requests, please find the record we have created in response to your request.
I hope this information is of assistance.
