Attached are releasable emails resulting from a search of the @hcpss system for all mailboxes between the date of Mr. Dickey’s separation through the date of this request that included a participant as those names provided through discussions to date to include “Donyall Dickey,” “Donyall R. Dickey,” and “Dr. Donyall R. Dickey,” along with “Donyall D. Dickey,” and drdickey10@yahoo.com as pulled from a record under a subsequent request, and excluding donyall_dickey@hcpss.org. We have withheld a series of emails which constitute letters of reference and discussions of such references which are exempt under MPIA GP § 4-310. All additional emails located under this search do not constitute public records as the content does not relate to “the transaction of public business” as defined under MPIA GP § 4-101(j).

*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.
