Douglas County School District will not release teachers’ names after public records request for those who protested school board policies

The Denver Post: Douglas County School District will not release the names of teachers and staff who called out sick earlier this month in protest of recent decisions by the school board despite a request filed by someone for the information under the state’s open records law.

Who requested the list of names or why is unknown. Teachers who were absent on Feb. 3 received an email from the district that only said an individual sought a list of names of employees who were out that day — information that is considered a public record — under the Colorado Open Records Act, according to a copy of the email reviewed by The Denver Post.

The person who sought the information rescinded their public records request, said board member David Ray.
