HCPSS MPIA Request #2018-019

Requested Information
Records of the bias incidents within Howard County Public Schools committed against a person or property which is motivated by the offender’s bias or attitude toward an individual or group of persons based upon their race, color, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or ethnicity/national origin, or because another is homeless.

We request data for the previous two school years including 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 that include the incident date, incident description (such as noose hung outside school), motivation for bias (such as racism), victim demographics (such as African American, female, elementary, Jr. High or High School), offender demographics, whether this was reported to the police (such as in the case of a hate crime), and any disposition of the incident within the school. If available, we would like to obtain the relevant incident reports with the names of the students redacted. (duplicate of 2018-018)
