From: Sacramento Unified School District

Dear Mr. Knox:

The District has located a substantial volume of email communications - well over one thousand emails - that are potentially responsive to your request for information. Many of such records have been determined to be exempt under the California Public Records Act, Government Code section 6254 due to containing confidential student information (Ed. Code 49060 et seq.), confidential personnel information, pending litigation and attorney-client privileged communications (section 6254(k)), as well as draft records and records reflective of the District's deliberative processes (6254(a)). Therefore, the District is in the process of reviewing said records for exempt information and will provide you with non-exempt responsive records on or before May 27, 2019.

Best Regards,
Raoul Bozio
In-House Counsel
Sacramento City Unified School District
