Many of the violations were glaring in their lack of transparency, someone had a very heavy hand with the black Sharpie marker to block out what they didn't want me to see. The hearing officer at the FOI Commission initially issued an order for the Board to turn over all of the documents for what is called an "In camera" review. During the review, all of the documents were observed, and in most part it was found that the redaction's and the withholding of documents was a violation of the Freedom of Information Act. You can read the obliterated documents in my earlier postings here http://wethepeoplehartford.blogspot.com/2016/04/a-pattern-of-abuse-deception-and.html
The proposed finding orders the Hartford Board of Education to provide most of the documents, with a few exceptions, to me "Forthwith". It is unclear why the Superintendent of Hartford Schools and the layers and Administrators at the Board Offices would fight so hard to engage in a cover-up for a pervert predator. Oh yeah, alleged pervert predator.
Although this process has taken almost a year to get to this point, it is worth it when the safety of Children is involved. Peeling back the layers of the Board's covering for Genao will hopefully serve notice the next time the appear to let a predator roam free in their midst that such behavior will be uncovered and not allowed. It is also amazing that we can pay attorneys to orchestrate these coverups, clearly in violation of Connecticut law, which they are sworn to uphold.
Maybe that is a budget cut we should look at instead of teachers and para professional's being cut
