Memo Decision 10-2
A member of the public asked whether the Department
of Education (“DOE”) properly denied his request for
DOE’s records pertaining to his civil rights complaints on
behalf of his son, under part III of the UIPA.
OIP found that the DOE may redact information
which would reveal the identity of a source who furnished information
under an express or implied promise of confidentiality. However,
the DOE must disclose information provided by the Requester, any
information about the Requester’s son, and any other records
generally available to the public.
