(December 2022) Multi-part request for Vance County, NC Schools: Corrective Action Plan on 11/07/22. And Central Administration / School Board Members communications 08/01/22 – 12/01/22.

Hello Vance County, NC Schools (Records Officer),

I'd like to make a multi-part public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

A) Please provide the Corrective Action Plan presented to the Local Government Commission and the State Auditor's Office by Vance County Schools – that was referred to, but not included in, the Vance County Schools board of education meeting materials on 11/07/22.

B) Please provide the written communications [unspecified] between Central Administration Staff and School Board Members about the Corrective Action Plan. During the specific time period of 08/01/22 through 12/01/22.

I am not requesting to come in person to inspect, nor to obtain printed copies of, electronic records. In accordance with NC Public Records Law, I’m requesting explicitly that all responsive records be provided via an electronic medium / format (in which the records should already exist), such as an email, file share, google drive folder, mailed flash drive if necessary, etc.

** I do not have any additional or further clarifying info to provide other than what you see in the message above. If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law.**

I am 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:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely from the email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Please note that I cannot commit to sign any forms or pay any potential fees / associated costs related to any request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Hi Marsha,

     

    Thank you for your reply.

     

    I am unable to provide any additional or further clarifying information about the request besides what has already been sent.

     

    Since you have confirmed that you cannot proceed without some additional information, I am going to “Close” / “Complete” the request on our website.

     

    The sender is encouraged to reach out to your office directly if they’d like any further assistance. Or — we also encourage them to submit an updated new request through our website, clearly specifying the exact information they hope to receive.

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Good afternoon,

     

    Both questions refer to the corrective action plan. I need to know what plan before I can comply with the request.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Marsha,

     

    Thank you for your reply.

     

    RE: A) Please provide the Corrective Action Plan presented to the Local Government Commission and the State Auditor’s Office by Vance County Schools – that was referred to, but not included in, the Vance County Schools board of education meeting materials on 11/07/22.

     

    I cannot locate the Board of Education’s November 07 meeting Agenda, or the November meeting minutes, anywhere on their website: https://www.vcs.k12.nc.us/Page/405 . Therefore, I cannot review, interpret, or further clarify what the sender might be referring to in Part A of the request.

     

    In general, as we are an anonymous website — I do not usually have any additional or further clarifying info to provide about a request, other than what you see in the original message above. If this portion of the request is too broad / unclear and you are unable to fulfill Part A. without further clarification…. then please let me know and I’ll ask that you omit Part A from the request.

     

    If in the future a sender would like to submit a new request with more clearly specified details, they are encouraged to do so.

     

    Thank you!

    Good morning,

     

    Can you be more specific in what corrective plan you are requesting? You stated that it was not included in the board packet which makes it difficult for me to determine what you are looking for. Is this a finance document that you are looking for?

     

    Thanks
    Marsha
