Hi there,

The Public Records Office is in receipt of your request below. Please note that under the Public Records Act, an agency has 5 business days after receipt to reply to a requestor with 1) the records requested, 2) an anticipated date of when the records will be provided, 3) a request for clarification and reasonable time estimate, or 4) a denial of the request (see WAC 44-14-04003(4) for further clarification). You can also access the District's public records procedure (4040SP) online here<https://www.seattleschools.org/UserFiles/Servers/Server_543/File/District/Departments/School%20Board/Procedures/Series%204000/4040SP.pdf>.

Since your request was submitted after business hours on 10/3 (at 6:34pm), our office received your request last Friday, 10/4.

That said, we are currently working with staff to locate the records you've requested and will respond within the 5-business day timeframe (by tomorrow, 10/11). At that point, we hope to either provide the requested records to you or convey an estimated turnaround time.

Thanks for your patience!
