 identified that you are the correct contact to complete this inventory.&nbsp; If that is not the case, could you please forward the form to the appropriate individual(s) within your District?<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class="MsoNormal">Using the attached, I would request that you complete the form for each of the schools within your district.&nbsp; These data will then be compiled and reviewed against the historic information collected via the NHBMPP.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">I would ask that you complete the inventory by <b><i>November 3<sup>rd</sup></i></b>, at the latest, as the Governor&#8217;s office, DOE, UNH and the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) are planning to review these data at
