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

To Whom it May Concern:
This letter acknowledges and responds to your public records request received by the Tacoma School District on February 3, 2020. It is my understanding that you are seeking the following records:

1. I request an electronic copy of all email communications between any employee of the Tacoma Public Schools and any member of the Washington School Personnel Association for the years 2014-2020.

2. I request an electronic copy of all emails in the possession of the Tacoma Public Schools to or from any user of the internet domain WSPA.NET for the years 2016-2020.

3. I request an electronic copy of all RECORDS and WRITING, documents, agreements, meetings, papers, scheduling, etc. referencing the Washington School Personnel Association for the years 2014-2020.
We are currently looking for any responsive records and at this time I estimate that it will take approximately thirty to sixty days to prepare records located that are responsive parts 1 and 2 of your request.
Part 3 of your request will take considerably longer. Based on an initial search, there are over 20,000 emails that are responsive to this portion. This does not include any non-email records that I might find within the school district. I am seeking clarification on this portion of the request. If you can narrow your requested records types, be more specific to the types of records for which you are seeking or provide additional search terms this may reduce the estimate of time. Because this portion of your request is so broad, it is difficult to estimate the amount of time it will take to produce all records. With that stated I estimate that it will take, at a minimum, one year to produce the records.
This estimate is based on the number of previously pending public records requests that our office is responding to, the time needed to locate and assemble the records requested, the need to determine whether any of the records are exempt from public disclosure, as well as other work for which I am responsible. This request will be provided in installments. I estimate the first installment will be available in approximately one month. I will contact you on or about March 5, 2020 regarding the status of your request.
Sincerely,

This letter acknowledges and responds to your public records request received by the Tacoma School District on February 3, 2020. It is my understanding that you are seeking the following records:

1. I request an electronic copy of all email communications between any employee of the Tacoma Public Schools and any member of the Washington School Personnel Association for the years 2014-2020.

2. I request an electronic copy of all emails in the possession of the Tacoma Public Schools to or from any user of the internet domain WSPA.NET for the years 2016-2020.

3. I request an electronic copy of all RECORDS and WRITING, documents, agreements, meetings, papers, scheduling, etc. referencing the Washington School Personnel Association for the years 2014-2020.
Please find the fifth installment which includes records responsive to number three by following this link: https://app.box.com/s/kpjb5bm0ha4pareszob74o1v58jblgue This link will be deactivated in 30 days. If you have not accessed this link and downloaded the records by August 8, 2020, I will assume you no longer require these records and will close the request. If you need any assistance accessing these records, please contact me.

In response to your email received 6/24/20, we acknowledge that you have declined to narrow down the request and understand that the third portion of this request will take a considerable amount of time. We are required to notify of the exemptions, however, it our discretion how to log that information. As of the previous installments, all exemptions were due to one exemption type. Therefore, we have chosen to notify you within the previous letters. If we find more than one exemption type in future installments, we will create a log noting these exemptions.

Part 3 of your request will take considerably longer. Based on an initial search, there are over 20,000 emails that are responsive to this portion. This does not include any non-email records that I might find within the school district. I am seeking clarification on this portion of the request. If you can narrow your requested records types, be more specific to the types of records for which you are seeking or provide additional search terms this may reduce the estimate of time. Because this portion of your request is so broad, it is difficult to estimate the amount of time it will take to produce all records. With that stated I estimate that it will take, at a minimum, one year to produce the records.

This estimate is based on the number of previously pending public records requests that our office is responding to, the time needed to locate and assemble the records requested, the need to determine whether any of the records are exempt from public disclosure, as well as other work for which I am responsible. This request will be provided in installments. I estimate the next installment will be available in approximately one month. I will contact you on or about August 8, 2020 regarding the status of your request.
