Texas CSCOPE Review has created this form letter for parents who want to know how deeply their local school board is in bed with CSCOPE:
Dear Superintendent _____________,
In light of recent criticism of the CSCOPE Curriculum, and in keeping with my parental right in accordance with Texas State Education Code 26.006, I am respectfully asking for a copy of the ____________(subject, grade) CSCOPE lessons from September, 2011 to May, 2012.
Thus, this request is made under the Texas Public Information Act, Chapter 552, Texas Government Code. The Open Records Act guarantees a citizen’s access to information in the custody of governmental agencies. Disclosure of this information is in the public interest because providing a copy of the information primarily benefits the general public. I therefore request a waiver of all fees and charges pursuant to Section 552.267 of this Act.
According to Wade Lebay, Texas State CSCOPE Director, as quoted in a recent article by Ann Work (12/2012, Wichita Falls Press) parents may view and have a copy of CSCOPE lessons and materials used in the classroom.
So that I may evaluate the CSCOPE lessons and handouts and have the material evaluated independently by a professional, I respectfully request copies of the material associated with this course.
Parent will submit their name and address
