In addition to data regarding number of nonpublic placements previously released under MPIA 2019-088, please find attached a chart containing destinations for those returning from nonpublic placements since SY15. Under both the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), which restricts access to student records, and MPIA GP § 4-313, which prevents disclosure of school district records pertaining to individual students, we have redacted identifying information regarding these students.
