Re: Response to Public Records Request 2020-00019
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,

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.

Hello,

I could not access y our "link" because it required a PASSWORD and "BOX" account which was not provided with the link. This request was not abandoned. It would be appreciated if the installment was provided without encryption or password protection. If you are requiring a new request to be submitted for this PRR please advise. Please provide future installment of records requested free of registrations, sign ups, 3rd party software, etc. Thank you.

From: Tacoma Public Schools

To Whom it May Concern:

Thank you for your email.

If there was a password requirement on the last link provided, this was not intentional, it is not our practice to add passwords to links provided.
Here is a new link for you to access installment nine: https://app.box.com/s/ge5x3qc9r66xaeftuo086uaiu8bc1yxg If you need any assistance accessing this link, please let me know.

Re: Response to Public Records Request 2020-00019

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.
As previously stated in the last correspondence, it was estimated the next installment would be available on January 11, 2021, not that the request would be completed by this date.

Please find the eleventh installment which includes records responsive to number three by following this link:
https://app.box.com/s/1pck0p0zosf7yqd2p5oofhnpv7xp6u63

If you need any assistance accessing this link, please let me know. This link will be deactivated in 30 days. If you have not accessed this link and downloaded the records by February 11, 2021, 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 you of the exemptions, however, it is at 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. 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 estimated that it will take, at a minimum, one year to produce the records. Additionally, we estimate that we need to extend this out.

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, on February 11, 2021. I will contact you on or about February 11, 2021 regarding the status of your request.

Re: Response to Public Records Request 2020-00019

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.

Please find the seventeenth installment which includes records responsive to number one by following this link:
https://app.box.com/s/manrzkqeru0p3k7m7613tmku3dxwkrif

This link will be deactivated in 30 days. If you have not accessed this link and downloaded the records by July 4, 2021, 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 you of the exemptions; however, it is at our discretion how to log that information. As of the previous installments, all exemptions were due to one exemption type. Along with the thirteenth and fourteenth installments, the exemption logs provided noted another exemption type other than being due to employee privacy. There were no exemptions with the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth installments and there are no exemptions for this current installment.

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. 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, the original estimate of one year will need to be extended to produce the records. At this point, we will provide estimates per installment. We estimate that there will be several more installments.

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, July 4, 2021. I will contact you on or about July 4, 2021 regarding the status of your request.

We are required to notify you of the exemptions; however, it is at our discretion how to log that information. As of the previous installments, all exemptions were due to one exemption type. Along with the 13th and 14th installments, the exemption logs provided noted another exemption type other than being due to employee privacy. There were no exemptions with the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st installments. There was an exemption for the 22nd installment and there are no exemptions with the 23rd or this current installment.

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. 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, the original estimate of one year will need to be extended to produce the records. At this point, we will provide estimates per installment. We estimate that there will be several more installments.

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, January 10, 2022. I will contact you on or about January 10, 2022 regarding the status of your request.

Good afternoon,

We have provided approximately half of the emails responsive to Part 3 of your request.

Please respond and confirm these are the emails you are seeking or if there is any way we can narrow down your request so we can provide you with the records you are seeking in a more timely manner.

At this time, we estimate that will take at least another year to provide the remainder of these records.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Hello,

We will need to extend the previous estimate for the next installment of records - as these are still in review.

The new estimate will be Monday, January 24, 2022.

Thank you for your patience.
