Response Notes

Responsive to this request, a search of all @hcpss mailboxes for the timeframe of July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020, with the keywords indicated resulted in one email. 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 are unable to release the responsive record. Information contained could reasonably identify an individual student, reveals information from an individual student’s record, or could do so when combined with other publicly accessible information.

*Some request language is summarized to include the requester's specific document requests and legally protected information (such as personally identifiable information of a student) or personal, defamatory and malicious content removed at the discretion of the school system.

**Responses containing legally protected information available only to the person of interest are omitted from the above report.

***Howard County Public Schools reserves the right to remove erroneous or outdated documents from this site.
