i-Ready contracts and curriculum

Todd Feathers filed this request with the Santa Clara County Unified School District of Santa Clara County, CA.

It is a clone of this request.



From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) All contracts, memorandums of understanding, data sharing agreements, and statements of work between the district and Curriculum Associates, the provider of i-Ready and Brigance products.

2) Academic year 2021-2022 curriculum plan documents for each grade level describing how i-Ready and Brigance products were to be incorporated in the classroom and/or at home. For example, schedules of which i-Ready assessments, lessons, or benchmarks are required/recommended for each grade.

3) All district policies, guidelines, and manuals describing the use of i-Ready and Brigance products. This should include policies for individual users like teachers about the proper uses of the tools. It should also include school- or district-wide policies, such as guidelines about how i-Ready assessments should be used to assess student or teacher performance, or how Brigance assessment results should be used to direct students toward appropriate programs.

4) All reports, reviews, studies, or annual summary documents prepared by district staff or Curriculum Associates since Jan. 1, 2020 regarding i-Ready and/or Brigance product performance and effectiveness.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and intend to use the requested records solely to further the public understanding of core government functions. I do not intend to use the records for any commercial purpose.

In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employee involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of it, I ask that you provide citation and explanation of the statutory exemptions and associated case law supporting your decision to withhold each/any portion from public review.

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.


Todd Feathers
