Response Notes

No existing student data reports identify/pull all “college-level” instruction taken by HCPSS high school students. Under the MPIA process, and as advised in the Fourteenth Edition of the Maryland Public Information Act Manual created by Maryland’s Office of the Attorney General, an agency is only obligated to produce existing records and is not required to summarize existing data or program/generate new reports that are not already used in the normal course of business. For reference, available data includes the Howard Community College report below and as previously provided for 2017 under MPIA 2018-197 which encompass several college-level enrollment options for HCPSS students.
