Here was my request to the GRISD (Glen Rose Independent School District):
---
Subject: Open Records Request

I would like to get a digital copy of the video and PowerPoint that were presented at the school board meeting last evening (12/17/2007). Can you email it (Doug said he could with the records request) to paul@glenrose.net?

Here's a copy of the letter I received back telling my I was not going to receive the public information I requested (right now, maybe never depending on Attorney General's office).

Here is my response back to the GRISD attorneys:
Subject: RE: Public Information Request

Hello Annette,
I did record it myself but the original copy would look better which is why I asked and understand your waiting on the reply from the AG office. Thank you for letting me know and look forward to their reply.

On the copy of the PowerPoint, Doug McClure assured me at the meeting that he indeed did have a copy and I was to request it via the request which is why I requested it. Again, I videotaped it but if you could provide the original it would look much better.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

I now wait for a reply from the attorney for GRISD.

I am of the opinion that if you show a video during a school board meeting, that video should be open to be shared else it should not be shown in the first place since the school board meeting itself falls under the Open Meetings Act.

Wow. So. It's perfectly legal to record meetings, either in audio or video(and I'm sure that GRISD must have an audio recording of the entire meeting), or heck, take notes during the meeting and a photo and put a PHOTO of the children who participated in the newspaper... as long as it's not GRISD that's doing it? Couldn't a school district then defeat the purpose of ever having to provide, via an open records request, materials that were openly shown in a public meeting... because CHILDREN were in them???? That is completely bizarre and makes absolutely no sense.

I'll tell you why it seems even MORE nonsensical- the GRISD website SHOWS children in a flash presentation getting Christmas awards. If it's not acceptable to put out material that shows children, then shouldn't GRISD take off the photos themselves? http://www.grisd.net/gallery/

Seems to me that Wayne Rotan, Superintendent of Glen Rose Independent School District, is wasting money on attorneys trying to prevent something his own school's web site is doing. Wouldn't someone consider this hypocrisy? You would think the school would have better things to do with their money then farm it out to some attorney (in Arlington, Texas no less) to do work that doesn't need to be done.
