California proposal seeks to keep parts of school crisis plans secret

June 30, 2011
Legislation is being considered by state senate

From The San Diego Union-Tribune: Every California campus has a school safety plan that lays out emergency strategies on how to surreptitiously communicate with police and which escape routes should be used if a crisis occurs. But under California’s Public Records Act, anyone is legally entitled to view and copy those plans. Alarmed that student safety could be compromised by public disclosure of that information, the San Diego Unified School District is sponsoring legislation to seal the most-sensitive parts of the safety plans. The Senate Education Committee has recommended approval of the measure.
