Requesting more information

I received documents from Fort Worth ISD concerning some of the information I requested.  However, like I mentioned in an earlier post, the school district did not necessarily have any specific documents with the information I requested. I requested information from the past two years, and in that time, only one elementary school reported a challenge on a book.

I received communication about the formal challenge from the JT Stevens Elementary school librarian as well as the documents and forms utilized by the school district in the event of a challenge. I would like to request the form that was actually filled out concerning the book in question.

However, I do appreciate that I was able to see the forms and process utilized in book suspension within the school district.

About ten days after I faxed my request to Fort Worth ISD, I received a phone call from someone in the legal department. She said she would look into finding the information I requested about banned books in the school district. Unfortunately, there are no existing documents that I described, but she said there was information regarding what I requested and she would see what she could do.

She also asked my preferred method of contact, so I gave her my email address to send the documents. I am hoping to receive the documents or some form of the information I requested soon.
