Per clarification to narrow this request to the first week of September 2019 for Board member @hcpss mailboxes where the participant (anywhere on the email) was an email address belonging to Dr. Martirano, the results – with the requested keywords and after removing those communications sent to the redistricting@hcpss mailbox that would already be available on the Board’s public testimony website to reduce review time – are attached here. 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. Additionally, under MPIA GP § 4-330, we have redacted sociological information where it contains personal phone numbers or addresses and/or has the potential to pose a risk to individual safety or privacy.
