Hi Dan, thanks for this attachment! I'm also looking for Incident Detail Reports, which should be a log of all incidents flagged by Gaggle, and why they were flagged. Any way you could pass this over?

Thanks,
Caroline

From: Edison Township Public Schools

Caroline, We received authorization from our attorney to forward you the
attached incident report in response to your OPRA request. Thanks DAN

Dan - please see the attached file…

we already sent bullet 1 information regarding purchasing vehicle… attached
is a spreadsheet that should address bullets 2 & 3

now, there isn’t any Personal Identifiable Information in the spreadsheet
but it doesn’t contain behavioral situations that happened within the
schools.

Not sure if you want to pass it by anyone prior to sending… I will leave
that too you

Best Regards,
Ralph
