Please send copies of any emails sent to/from administrators including, but not limited to

  • Erica Loiacono

That include any of the following words/phrase/people

From May1, 2020 to Sept 1, 2020

(I picked these dates, because May 25, 2020 was the day George Floyd died and August 6, 2020 was the first DEI task force zoom call.)  

District Response on Jul 30 from Dr. Kyle

“…We will respond to your request by August 6, 2021…”

District Response on Aug 2 from Dr. Kyle

The initial search for the key words and names produced over 4000 emails.  Is there a time period that you can shorten your FOIA request?  Currently, 4000 emails would be considered unduly burdensome.   You can shorten the length, people or key words and I can re-run a search to help with your FOIA request. 

I (Jan Shaw) replied

You are right.  I do not want to look at 4,000 emails!

Can you give me any indication of how many per keyword in the list?  Maybe shortening that list would help. 

And of course, emails that are enclosed in other emails do not need to be repeated.

“Finally, I ask that you communicate with the members of the District 200community how you intend to build racial bias introspection and accountability into your work and which resourced you choose to take up to guide your anti-racist leadership practices.  Additionally, if you reject this request, please make public your rationale for doing so.”
