Hello Ms. Ram:

This email responds in part to your July 19, 2018 public records request
which requested the following:

-Any expense reports related to active shooter/active assailant preparation
(i.e. insurance)
-Any active shooter/active assailant insurance policies
-Any student safety policies related to an active shooter/active assailant

Please note that the District is still processing the first two items in
your request and will be getting back to you soon.

As to the first item, though, one expense report is attached. The
redacted information is non-responsive and/or exempt and confidential from
public record disclosure pursuant to
*F.S. **119.071 ((3) (a) and F.S. 281.301 as part of a security system
plan--see explanation for item 3 below.*

As to the third item, attached are School Board policies.

As to any additional documents in response to this third item, they are
exempt and confidential from public record disclosure pursuant to
*F.S. **119.071 ((3) (a) and F.S. 281.301. These statutes provide that
Information relating to the security system plans (including records,
information, photographs, diagrams, recommendations, etc.) for any property

system plans for any privately owned or leased property which is in the
possession of the District, including all records, information,
photographs, audio and visual presentations, schematic **diagrams, surveys,
recommendations, or consultations or portions thereof relating directly to
or revealing such systems or information, is confidential and exempt with
specified exceptions (F.S. § 119.071(3)(a) and F.S. § 281.301). See Fla.
AGO 2105-06 (April 16, 2015) (Surveillance tapes from a security system for
a public building constitute information which reveals a security system).*

Note that as to items 1 and 2 some of the information may also be exempt

Hello:

In addition to our response of July 31 to your July 19, 2018 records
request, attached please find the insurance policy you requested.

The redacted portions of the policy are exempt and confidential from public
record disclosure pursuant to *F.S. *119.071 ((3) (a) and F.S. 281.301.
These statutes provide that Information relating to the security system
plans (including records, information, photographs, diagrams,
recommendations, etc.) for any property owned or leased to the District or
information relating to the security system plans for any privately owned
or leased property which is in the possession of the District, including
all records, information, photographs, audio and visual presentations,
schematic diagrams, surveys, recommendations, or consultations or portions
thereof relating directly to or revealing such systems or information, is
confidential and exempt with specified exceptions (F.S. § 119.071(3)(a) and
F.S. § 281.301). See Fla. AGO 2105-06 (April 16, 2015) (Surveillance tapes
from a security system for a public building constitute information which
reveals a security system).

As to the first item in your request, aside from what we already
produced, the expense of the insurance policy appears in paragraph 7 of the
policy and the redacted information is based on the same exemptions and
confidentiality in *F.S. *119.071 ((3) (a) and F.S. 281.301.

The District is still searching to see if there are any additional
documents relating to expenses and if there are you will hear from us soon.

Hello,
As I am reading through the insurance policies you passed along, I have a clarifying question: what is the relationship between Lloyd's and McGowan?

Thank you for your time.

Best,
Sarika
