Test prep and technology request – Jackson Co. NC schools

Good Afternoon Jackson County Public Schools and Jackson County government,

We would like to request a list of all combinations of Subject, Grade, Number students, Type of laptop used, and Number of days of test preparation on that device type for that student group.

For example, we are specifically interested in 20 3rd grades prepared for the math EOG 10 days on a surface pro and 10 days on a Lenovo Thinkpad. Additionally, we would like the specific device type (laptop brand/make) that was used on the actual day of testing. For each student group, was the primary testing laptop brand / device the same as what which used on the actual test date?

What percent of the JCPS budget, as allocated by Jackson County government, funds laptops for testing purposes?

[Editor's Note: The sender of this request indicated in the "Start Date" and "End Date" section of their form on our site that the timeline for the information to be included in this request is Aug. 01, 2018 - June 04, 2019. This is what will be sent to Gov.]

    Good afternoon Jackson County Public Schools and Jackson County Government,

     

    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 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 of the request:
