RE: Public records request
To whom it may concern,
I know you are busy, but I want to thank you in advance for helping me gather some
public records regarding superintendents and high school coaching salaries. I am writing to
request a copy of the contract for the district superintendent, including pay and any other
compensation he or she might receiv e. Also, if your district has a paid high school head football
coach, or several head coaches, I would like a copy of that person (or persons’) contract,
including pay and any other compensation they receive for their duties.
I would be happy to pay copying and postage fees and help in any way I can, but if the
cost is more than $5, please contact me and let me know. If the files are available electronically
and would be more convenient to copy and email, then that would great too.
I would very much appreciate a response by the end of the month, and if there is
information that I am not entitled to, please let me know. I understand that sometimes some
information doesn’t warrant disclosure for statutory reasons, and might need to be blotted out
while releasing the public part.
If there is anything I can do to help with the request, please do not hesitate to let me know
(email is the fastest way to reach me).
Thanks again for your help!
