One of my students has requested information held about her by WEGC. She appears to be entitled to it although the initial response from the school was incomplete. A complete response will likely include all administrative, pastoral, attendance and performance information. It should also include all emails within the KAMAR system pertaining to the student and arguably any mail within the WEGC domain. I am quite interested, as an IT professional, about the outcome of her request. Who owns the information? Can a request be refused, especially once the student turns 18 which will be quite soon? What if some of the data is in older systems (pre KAMAR) and a burden to retrieve? I look forward to seeing what happens.
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
