I’d like to request the total number of students on free and reduced lunch in Buncombe County and Asheville City Schools in 2017, and to date in 2018. Please break down the totals by race. Please provide this data in a machine readable format such as CSV, XML, Spreadsheet, etc.

**Editor’s Note: We sent this same request to both Asheville City Schools and Buncombe County Schools,. We will post all of our correspondences with both parties on this single request.

    Hello and thank you for your email.
    Buncombe County Schools does not track free and reduced meals recipients by race. We do track applicants and recipients by school. That data is attached to this email. Thank you!

    Hello Buncombe County Schools,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:

    **Editor’s Note: We acknowledge the ACS record process, as provided by Dr. Patterson on a previous Sunshine Request in March 2018.

     

    1. Even though the public records law and personnel information law do not specifically require ACS to email public records, we will email public information upon request. If an issue arises regarding a specific response, we are more than willing to discuss that with you.

     

    2. As you know, the public records law does not require any public entity to create documents or answer questions. Please make sure that everyone using your service is aware of this. Please know that Asheville City Schools does its best to respond to questions and concerns from parents and members of the public. We prefer to speak with individuals and establish positive relationships. This will allow everyone to have a dialogue and understand important aspects of any concerns or issues. We encourage that individuals contact us directly with questions.
