Date Received
Response Notes

Responsive to this request, HCPSS Maintenance staff does not maintain a list or counts of toilets and urinals by school, and more specifically, those accessible without entering a classroom. Please note, under the MPIA process, and as advised in the Fifteenth Edition of the Maryland Public Information Act Manual created by Maryland’s Office of the Attorney General, an agency is only obligated to produce existing records and is not required to generate new data or summarize data. For reference, staff indicates facilities are constructed in accordance with building codes at the time of design/construction, which drives the number of toilets and urinals that are installed in schools.

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***Howard County Public Schools reserves the right to remove erroneous or outdated documents from this site.
