To Whom it May Concern,

I failed to include dates in my previous FOIA request on VSBA communications. I'm sorry for that oversight. Please consider the dates for each of the three requests to be January 1st, 2021 to present (October 12th, 2021).

Please let me know if you have any questions,
Tom Nash

From: Prince George County Public Schools, Prince George

I am in receipt of your FOIA request below.

Prince George County Public Schools do not participate in collective bargaining. We have received several emails from VSBA advertising training opportunities for our personnel to attend conferences, but our personnel has not registered for these specific conferences relating to collective bargaining since we do not participate. However, during the VSBA Law Conference in June, 2021, Collective Bargaining was a topic of discussion and three of our personnel were in attendance during that meeting.

The cost to continue with a search of emails and correspondence would be approximately $175. Since you have now provided a 10-month range, this estimated total is calculated based on the hourly rates of personnel and the estimated hours required to search, access, duplicate, and supply the responsive records.

Further, in accordance with ยง 2.2-3704(H), before the School Division can commence with the search and retrieval process for the requested records, you will be required to remit a deposit of $175. This amount should be made payable to Prince George County Public Schools and shall be credited toward the final cost of supplying the requested records. If the actual costs exceed the estimate provided above, you will be responsible for paying the balance prior to receiving any records.

The School Division will move forward with searching and producing any records that are responsive to your request under FOIA upon receiving clarification from you regarding the requested records and receipt of the required deposit.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
