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 to Sender 01/09/2023: We continue to experience issues in fulfilling or getting responses to requests sent to Guilford County, NC Schools.
As we noted (12/14/22) on an identical request to the one above:
“Having made numerous attempts to follow up, and receiving no reply — We [marked] this request as “Denied” by GCS. If at some point Jose or GCS decide to reply, then we will reopen the request at that time.
Additionally– If the sender would like to submit a new records request through our website, then we will be happy to submit it to GCS’ records portal. It’s possible that may help get a response.”
We will submit the new January 2023 request to GCS, and all updates we receive will be indicated on our site. We anticipate, however, that it will be difficult to get a response to our emails… and if so, we will need to call GCS follow up. We’ll do that as soon as is possible.
We also wanted to mention we’ve had difficulty getting a response to another recent request from November 2022: https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/november-2022-request-for-guilford-county-nc-schools-legal-audit-and-investigative-fees-07-01-2019-06-30-2022/
We plan to follow up with GCS about that again this week or next. We will have to call someone to figure out why our emails / requests continue to bounce back and/or why our email address seems to have been “blocked” by GCS’ FOIA account.
Additional Note for Users: Sunshine Request does not control if / when Government entities will confirm receipt, begin processing, complete, or deny requests we submit to them via our website. If you would like to make a request that is time sensitive, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate government entity directly for assistance with a request, rather than submitting through our site.
Sunshine Request is run by a very small team. Due to holidays, unforeseen events / scheduling conflicts, there may be times that we cannot publish or update requests for several days. We will do our best to process all requests as quickly as possible.
We review and send in requests to the appropriate entities as quickly as we are able, and it is up to the Government agency to determine the timeline and speed with which the request can be processed. We generally try to follow up on requests once every 1 – 2 weeks as we’re able, until the government agency has confirmed that the request has been received and is being processed (and there is some timeline for completion), and we will wait to follow up again during the time period they specify.
Please do not send us additional submissions asking that we “follow up on” a request on our site, or to ask for a status update on a request. If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please “Search” for your request via the “Search box”, or by viewing the list of requests on the View All Requests page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.
