Parents have 'absolute right' to inspect records

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Parents have an "absolute right" to inspect all educational records relating to their children, including e-mails exchanged between teachers and administrators.

That's the conclusion reached by the attorney general's office after parent Jonathan Sholar appealed a decision by the Caldwell County school district to withhold certain records he had requested.

The attorney general's office concluded that the Caldwell County school district violated the state's open records law by refusing Sholar access to all documents, e-mails, notes, correspondence and memoranda involving his daughter.

 Caldwell County School Superintendent Carrell Boyd said he will abide by the attorney general's opinion and give Sholar access to the information rather than appeal the matter to circuit court.
