Multi Request Brightbytes models and policies
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) All documents outlining current predictive risk models developed as part of the BrightBytes Early Warning system for all schools in the district (and by grade, if applicable). To clarify, I'm requesting the documents that lay out how the models weigh the 24 indicators the BrightBytes Early Warning system monitors in each school. More information about the BrightBytesEarly Warning system models and indicators can be found here:

2) All district and/or school policies governing how teachers, counselors, administrators, and other school staff should use the early warning system. This should include directives to staff about implementing the proper interventions and monitoring for at-risk students.

3) All published studies, white papers, or other research provided to the district by BrightBytes regarding its products.

4) All guidelines, user manuals, or other informational material provided to the district by BrightBytes regarding its products.

5) All contracts and privacy policies between BrightBytes and the district.

I ask that all fees be waived for this request as I am a journalist (examples of my work can be found at and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purpose.

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.

Mr. Feathers,
My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. This time in our
district has been very hectic and I have been remiss in not getting to this
before now. I have your request now and will have our staff compile any
responsive documents we have and get it to you as soon as possible.
Thank you.

From: Oakland Unified School District

Mr. Feathers,
Once again, thank you for your patience.

I can tell you for your request, we have no responsive documents. OUSD does
not use BrightBytes.

Thank you.
