The attached records were collected as emails between Board members and Council members (or their staff) which referenced the desegregation/integration resolution. Under 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 information that could reveal individual student information from the responsive records. Under MPIA GP § 4-330, we have redacted sociological information where it contains personal contact information and/or has the potential to pose a risk to individual privacy.
