FOIA Request - Galesburg CUSD 205

The purpose for this request was to help ascertain the total effect of the Galesburg Community Unit School District #205 Board of Education’s decision to limit the number of school days below the required number of attendance days as outlined in 105 ILCS 5/18-8.05.

Update 2: Draft 82014

Yesterday, September 15, 2014, I received an additional document, meant to be included in the original release from CUSD 205. I don’t believe this document to have been omitted intentionally, but I’m posting it here, in the interest of full disclosure.

Update: Searchable document now available.

The preceding is the original document I received from Galesburg Community Unit School District #205, in response to the request I filed last week under the Freedom of Information Act.

I’ll post more pertinent excerpts from this document as they are reviewed. However, in the interest of full disclosure, I post the original here for public dissemination.

The first document is the excerpt in its original form. The second document is the result of running the first through an OCR processor in an effort to make the text within the scanned images searchable. I’ve provided both versions to ensure transparency in the event of errors in the conversion process.
