School district ordered to release spreadsheet detailing complaints
A school district received an open records request from a reporter, asking for copies of “any and all current policies and procedures used by HR for employee-related investigations,” including “the actual investigation log.” The school district sought to withhold from disclosure a three-page spreadsheet with information about complaints made against employees.
The district asked the Texas attorney general to find that the document was not subject to disclosure. The AG concluded that the identity of the complainants could not be disclosed, but the rest of the document was subject to disclosure. The school district appealed the ruling.
