Take a look at Rockford’s tactics regarding FOIA. This may become the model for many neighboring districts. School Board are tight fisted with most dollars unless money keeps the doors closed to the public.
response to the PAC’s Sept. 29 ruling that the district should release the letter, District 205 has filed for the use of a third exemption—Section 7(1)(n) of the FOIA.
letter sought by the Rock River Times is exempt from disclosure pursuant to Section 140/7 (n) of FOIA as it is a disciplinary record that is not the final outcome of the disciplinary proceeding and that this position resolves this matter.”
