Date: April 23, 2003
To: Ann Weick, Dean
University of Kansas
School of Social Welfare
1545 Lilac Lane

From: Kansas Senator Susan Wagle

Wichita, KS 67230
In accordance with the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) K.S.A. 45-215 et seq., I am making an open records request for the following public records. If these records do not exist, please so inform me or provide me with records containing the same information. Likewise, if the requested public record exists, but is closed, I hereby request, under K.S.A. 45-218(d), that you provide me with the written citation to the law or laws being relied upon in denying this record request.
1. Please provide copies of any and all resumes, curriculum vitae, educational qualifications, and credentialing records pertaining to Professor Dennis Dailey including but not limited to any records concerning when and where he received his training in sexuality, including the course work taken and the credentialing he received as a result.
2. Please provide copies of any findings and the documents that have been created as a result of any grants awarded to Professor Dailey.
3. Please provide copies of all of Professor Dailey's publications and conference presentations.
4. Please provide the total number of students who enrolled in Professor Dailey's class "Human Sexuality in Everyday Life" for the Fall Semester 02, Spring Semester 02 and the Fall Semester 03.
5. Please provide a report of how many students in Professor Dailey's class received A's, B's, C's etc. in the Fall and Spring Semester of 02. Names of students are not necessary, just how many students were awarded each grade.
6. Please provide a copy of the written curriculum for the class taught by Professor Dailey titled "Human Sexuality in Everyday Life", copies of tests given to students in that class for academic achievement, and all written materials provided to the students by professor Dailey or used by Professor Dailey in the class for the past five years.
7. Please provide copies of and/or access to all the slides, video's and films that been viewed by the class taught by Professor Dailey titled "Human Sexuality in Everyday Life"during the Fall and Spring semester of 2002, and the Spring semester of 2003. I am aware that the KORA does not require a public agency to make copies of films and that the law does not require the materials be brought to the Capital for inspection. However, the law does require that the films and videos be subject to inspection. It would be helpful if the University allowed legislators to view the materials in a convenient forum by allowing us to borrow the films between the dates of April 28th and May 2nd. If the University is unwilling to make this accommodation, please provide me with the time, date, and place at which legislators may view the films and videos in question.
8. Please provide a copy of all records connected with a financial accounting of all University monies spent for audio and visual materials and teaching aids that have been used in Professor Dailey's class in the past two years. A specific list and the cost of each item is requested. Please provide a list of all slides, films and videos shown in the class over the last two years, listing each by name, publication date, date of purchase, and the institution the materials were purchased from. If such a list does not exist and the University is unwilling to create one, please provide copies of the vouchers, order forms, and other public records from which such information may be derived.
9. Please provide a copy of all public records that evidence the out of state travel reimbursement paid to Dr. Dailey, or that has been charged by him to the University for the last five years. Please give a detailed accounting of all charges made, the name of the event attended and the location.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. I look forward to your timely response.
