FOIA Requests during Shelter at Home

On March 20, 2020 Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a Shelter In Place Order, which is effective as of 5:00 p.m., March 21, 2020 to April 7, 2020. Accordingly, all District staff is either unavailable or will be focused on learning resources, continuation of meals for those in need and other urgent needs and emergencies. In light of the foregoing, the District respectfully requests that you consider waiting to submit your FOIA request until after the Shelter In Place Order has been lifted. Alternatively, the District requests that you agree to waive the statutory response deadlines and allow the District to respond to the request as soon as is practicable. If you are agreeable to waiving the response deadlines, please affirmatively state that in your request. In the event you do not choose one of the foregoing options, the District will respond to your request pursuant to state law, which includes the ability to identify and deny a request if it is determined to be unduly burdensome.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during this time.
