The following is copied from the article, above, almost the very bottom:
"... the district wrote a letter with the subject line, "Request for Reconsideration of Opening of Investigation."

The link of this letter, provided - Web Link

Even I could not invent this one.

Orwellian letter come to mind.
This letter is about an OCR investigation.

While I totally agree that personal matters should remain personal especially when dealing with children, is it possible that every single sentence in a three pages long letter is about personal issues?

Is it possible that no word, not to mention some substance could have remained UNredacted for the public to see?

@Moderator - Thank you for posting the documents!

May I, respectfully, suggest to add the links of the recent source materials made available to the public to this thread, titled - School documents and source materials, link Web Link?

The thread was last updated on March 14th. I am asking here since this thread is currently not available for comments.

I think it will be great to have one page containing all documents/source materials (links), including the letter I mentioned in my previous posting, above.
