Student cumulative education record file (including "permanent record card") for Esty (Estelle, Esther) Lichtenstein, born 1897

Reclaim The Records filed this request with the Department of Education of New York City, NY.


From: Reclaim The Records

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

Please provide a copy of the student cumulative education record file (including the "permanent record card") for a former New York City public school student named Esty (a.k.a. Estelle or Esther) Lichtenstein, who was born in 1897. She attended school in Manhattan, probably in Greenwich Village. She probably would have graduated from high school around 1915.

This record is believed to exist, as the New York State Archives lists these types of student records in their New York Records Retention and Disposition Schedule ED-1, as "permanent".
(Online reference: )

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.
