(November 2022) Multi-part request for Guilford County, NC Schools: Out of county and consulting work travel information for employees 01/01/2018 – 12/01/2020

Hello Guilford 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

This request is related to Travel records for Guilford County Schools employees from 01/01/2018 - 12/01/2020.

Specifically – I’d like to request all information from Guilford County Schools pertaining to out-of-county work travel and any consulting travel from January 01, 2018 through December 01, 2020 for former Guilford County Schools employees Sharon Contreras and Tony Watlington.

The responsive records should include the following:

- Place of Travel:
- Purpose of Travel:
- Length of Travel:
- Itemized Cost of Travel for Housing, Food and Transportation:
- Documentation of Travel Approval by School Board and Finance Department:
- Documentation of any Honorariums, Speaker Fees Payments and Consulting Payments:

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.

    Good Afternoon Jose (and Guilford County, NC Schools Webmaster CCed).

     

    Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to send you an email through your records portal directly to follow up. Also, the messages I’ve sent to Jose’s justfoia address above, continue to bounce back to me as “denied” or “rejected” by your servers.

    ——–

     

    This message serves as another follow up to the records request #: PRR-152-2022, which was first sent to your office on Nov 03, 2022, 3:30 PM.

     

    Once again — I apologize for any confusion, and appreciate your fulfillment of the request referenced in the email subject line above (# PRR-106-2021). That request was sent in August 2021 and asked for “2021-2022 Guilford County, NC Schools ACES Program Pre-Registration Survey rates”. I mistakenly referenced that request number in my recent emails to you. However, the good news is your recent reply does satisfy my August 2021 request. I had marked it as “Denied” on our website back in January 2022 when I did not receive replies from your office. I have now posted the responsive results on our website, and marked it as “Completed”. For reference you can see this at the following URL:

     

    (August 2021) Request for 2021-2022 Guilford County, NC Schools ACES Program Pre-Registration Survey rates

    —————–

     

    I am now following up for a third time on the request #: PRR-152-2022. [Subject: (November 2022) Multi-part request for Guilford County, NC Schools: Out of county and consulting work travel information for employees 01/01/2018 – 12/01/2020]

     

    Can you please confirm if that request is still being processed, and let me know an anticipated date of completion?

     

    I will follow up again in 1 week, if I do not hear back.

     

    Thank you!
