Date Received
Response Notes

Responsive to this request, and per clarification regarding the scope of correspondence sought, we reviewed emails located through a search of the @hcpss email system within the parameters below:
•    Date Range
o    Prior to the date of this request 
•    Mailbox Locations
o    Marcy Leonard
•    Participants
o    “@cfhoco.org” or “Community Foundation of Howard County”

Those reviewed were results over the past year starting with the most recent, and all were determined to be unresponsive as they would not fall within the purview of a public record of the HCPSS. In particular, MPIA GP § 4-101 (k) (1) (i) defines a public record as the original or any copy of any documentary material that is made by a unit or an instrumentality of the State or of a political subdivision or received by the unit or instrumentality in connection with the transaction of public business. Ms. Leonard indicates her status as a board member for this organization is as an individual community member, and as such, the results were identified as those that would not constitute the transaction of HCPSS business for which records are subject to release by HCPSS under the MPIA.
