Dougco releases name of person who requested teacher absence records

9NEWS: A law partner of KHOW talk radio host Dan Caplis, who previously called for Douglas County School District (DCSD) to release the names of teachers who were absent on Feb. 3, filed the public records request to get those teachers’ names.

Michael Kane confirmed to 9NEWS he submitted the request on Feb. 2, the day before many staff members walked out to protest the impending termination of Superintendent Corey Wise. The school board fired Wise without cause on Feb. 4.

Kane ended up rescinding his request before any names went public.

“I submitted the open records request for my own use as a parent of children within the Douglas County School District. As a favor to and at the request of the District, I withdrew the submission and never received any of the names,” Kane told 9NEWS via email.
