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 09/10/21: We apologize for the delay in processing and publishing this request on our site. Sunshine Request is a project built and run by a small team at PRC Applications. We run the site in addition to our primary business. While we will always do our best to process and follow up on requests as quickly as possible, there may be occasional delays, depending on our availability in a given week or month.

The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. As written it is unclear what specific information the sender is asking for, and to what Government entity (or entities) the request should actually be addressed.

** Note: It is unclear whether Education Elements, Inc. is the intended “entity” to which the request should be addressed. And if so, it is also unclear whether they are a Government Entity or subject to any Public Records Laws. If they are not… Then, due to the personal nature of this request, we’d suggest that you reach out to that group directly for any further assistance. 

Additionally — If this submission was intended to be several unique requests addressed to several different government entities, please submit each request separately through our site.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request. While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

☀️ 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.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.
