Last January I requested information pertaining to records requests made to the
Stow- Munroe Falls School District.
I now have hose records and I would like to share the results though this blog. My goal is to give anyone interested in this topic the basic information needed to understand the scope of the requests being made and how our school system has responded to those requests.
By example I am going to use our school district and the requests made of it during the last 12 months.
You will be able to see the actual requests. In most cases the response is omitted as the information requested is not the topic of this blog. There are about 200 pages of data available.
Some is redundant and I will try to limit the repetition by only publishing the complete thread as it relates to the handful of topics from a very small number of individuals.
Nothing has been redacted. I am organizing the requests by date and grouping them by the requestor’s name.
The first group has been uploaded for you to view. It will take time but the rest will be uploaded over the coming weeks.
I believe access to public records is essential in an open democracy. Do record requests place an undue strain on public agency resources?
