[See Editor’s Note](February 2021) Submission related to “Clarification about Winston-Salem Schools request”


Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 02/08/21: The above submission has been marked as “Completed”. As it was written it was unclear what specific information the sender is requesting, and is not a clear actionable request for public records.

Please track the status of the referenced “Winston Salem Schools request” at the following URL: https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/january-2021-request-for-winston-salem-forsyth-county-nc-schools-employee-emails-01-01-19-01-15-21/

Using the information sent by Brent Campbell as a guideline, we’d ask that the sender please submit a brand new request that is clearly written, narrowed in scope, and also specifies any persons/entities/addresses that should be included.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that include profanity, personal statements, opinions, possibly defamatory statements, or other unnecessary info that is not relevant to making a records request.
Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested, as well as any “sent to” “from” “between”, or “by” information (if applicable, as relates to communications or emails type requests.

This will help reduce the amount of time needed for our team to review and send the request, and will also reduce the likelihood that a government entity will need additional clarification in order to process the request.
