December 24, 2015. Your request was forwarded to the appropriate offices within the
Department of Education (the Department) for any responsive documents they may have.
You requested:
Any and all emails from the dates of 8/15/15 through 12/23/15, sent to or received from, whether
in to: or cc: format, and with any and all attachments included, between the following United
States Department of Education employees: Arne Duncan, Ann Whalen, Monique Chism, Julie

In an interim response dated March 24, 2016, the Department provided to you six (6) pages of
records, and on April 4, 2016, and additional 635 pages of record were provided to you. The
provided records were located within the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education
(OESE).
The Office of the Secretary (OS) informed the FSC that after a thorough search, they were
unable to locate any records responsive to your FOIA request; therefore, the Department has no
additional records.
