FOIL Friday – helps access school records like emails and personnel files

If you have been following my blog, then you know that I love the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). They even nicknamed me “Frankie the FOILer.” The records I obtained have been crucial weapons in thefight back and attempts to expose corruption in our schools. However, it almost becomes a full time jobto make requests, manage and follow up with denials and appeals. It’s not like schools want to just open the books for you. Now there is a service that can help the novice and even experienced “FOILer” obtain a wide assortment of records…

For a fee, they can help you obtain emails sent, receipts and expenditures, video surveillance, credit card statements etc.
