If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

I acknowledge that some Regular meeting minutes from January through July 2014, Agendas or supporting documents through July 01, 2014, and Archived info for meetings prior to Aug 05, 2014 ... are supposed to be available online at the following URLs. However, I've reviewed all the links, and am unable to access all the records I'm now requesting, in their entirety:

    Hello Sunshine,

     

    Responses are below, and additional records attached.

     

    If such a record exists, please provide the complete meeting minutes from a Wake County Schools Board of Education “Closed meeting” held on August 14, 2014.

    The minutes for the closed session on 8/14 consist of personnel information and student grievances, which are privileged and confidential information and cannot be publicly disclosed pursuant to NC GS 115C-319 and GS 115C-402 and FERPA.

     

    I also do not see any meeting info or documents for any meetings in September 2014 (as requested in Item #B). I assume that’s likely because “no meetings were held from August 06 through September 01, 2014”. Can you please clarify if that is correct?

    We have located the Board minutes between 8/5/14 and 9/16/14 since your last email. Please find the responsive documents attached, and thanks for your patience.

     

    Thank you,

     

    **Editor’s Note: Please also see the 1 file referenced (“Board Minutes August and September 2014 (R2851516x7AD04).PDF”) at top left in our Documents section.

    Good afternoon Lisa, and all others CCed,

     

    I submitted the following public records request to your offices on August 24th:

     

    from: Sunshine Request <[email protected]>
    to: [email protected]
    cc: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], Lisa Luten _ Staff – Communications <[email protected]>, Cathy Moore _ Staff – Superintendent <[email protected]>, Anthony Muttillo _ Staff – HumanResources <[email protected]>, [email protected]
    date: Aug 24, 2023, 5:07 PM
    subject: Records Request: (August 2023) Request for Wake County, NC Schools Board of Education: Possible 08/14/14 closed meeting minutes. And ALL Board minutes 05/01/14 – 09/01/14.

     

    I replied to Lisa’s message back on October 25th.

     

    To reiterate — I reviewed the document she provided. I’ve noted that there was a BOE “Work Session” held on August 05, 2014. However, I do not see any info that clarifies whether or not a “Closed Meeting” was held on August 14, 2014 (as requested in Item #A of my request). Additionally, I do not see any meeting info or documents for any meetings in September 2014 (as requested in Item #B). I assume that means that “no meetings were held from August 06 through September 01, 2014”, but I’ve asked repeatedly that you please clarify whether that understanding is correct.

     

    Today is now my fourth attempt to follow up with you all regarding that message since 10/25. I have not received any response.

     

    Having made all reasonable attempts to follow up with you, and having received no reply — I’m going to now mark this request as having been “Denied” by your organization. I would like to recommend that WCPS revisits their current public records request fulfillment process to ensure that you’re in compliance with the Law, and that you fulfill and respond to all requests in a timely manner.

     

    Thank you.

    Hi Lisa, and all others CCed,

     

    Please reply promptly.

     

    This is my third attempt to follow up with you since October 25h. I have not received any response.

     

    To reiterate. My request called for the following:

     

    A. If such a record exists, please provide the complete meeting minutes from a Wake County Schools Board of Education “Closed meeting” held on August 14, 2014.

     

    B. Please provide the complete meeting minutes for ALL Wake County Schools Board of Education (Open, Closed, and Other) meetings held from May 01, 2014 through September 01, 2014. A word document, PDF, or any other machine-readable format would be sufficient to provide this info to me via email. If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

     

    I acknowledge that some Regular meeting minutes from January through July 2014, Agendas or supporting documents through July 01, 2014, and Archived info for meetings prior to Aug 05, 2014 … are supposed to be available online at the following URLs.

    https://www.wcpss.net/Page/3728

     

    Upon my initial review of the document you’ve sent — I could see there was a BOE “Work Session” held on August 05, 2014. However, I did not see any info that clarifies whether or not a “Closed Meeting” was held on August 14, 2014 (as requested in Item #A).

     

    I also do not see any meeting info or documents for any meetings in September 2014 (as requested in Item #B). I assume that’s likely because “no meetings were held from August 06 through September 01, 2014”. Can you please clarify if that is correct?

     

    This is my final attempt to follow up with you. Having made all reasonable attempts to follow up, and having received no reply — if I do not hear back in 1 week, I will mark this request as having been “Denied” by your organization.

     

    Thank you.

    Here are the details of the request:

    Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which is being made in accordance with NC Public Records Law.
    Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

     

    ** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I am NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to inspect, nor to obtain a printed copy of, these electronic records. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of these records should already exist).

     

    I do not have any further clarifying info I wish to provide to narrow this request. If the request is unclear, or if you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of the request, then please specifically cite where a reason for its denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

     

    A. If such a record exists, please provide the complete meeting minutes from a Wake County Schools Board of Education “Closed meeting” held on August 14, 2014.

     

    B. Please provide the complete meeting minutes for ALL Wake County Schools Board of Education (Open, Closed, and Other) meetings held from May 01, 2014 through September 01, 2014. A word document, PDF, or any other machine-readable format would be sufficient to provide this info to me via email. If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

     

    I acknowledge that some Regular meeting minutes from January through July 2014, Agendas or supporting documents through July 01, 2014, and Archived info for meetings prior to Aug 05, 2014 … are supposed to be available online at the following URLs. However, I’ve reviewed all the links, and am unable to access all the records I’m now requesting, in their entirety:

If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and explanations for those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

     

    By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:
