To MuckRock News:
The Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) is in receipt of your open
records request dated September 11, 2019. However, despite your disclaimer
that "this request is not filed by a MuckRock staff member, but is being
sent through MuckRock by the above in order to better track, share, and
manage public records requests," your request has not identified the actual
requester. While the Wisconsin Open Records law does not require
disclosure of the requester's identity, the MMSD contends that the
requester's identity is relevant in its determination of whether there is a
safety concern that would prohibit disclosure of the requested documents.
*See* Wisconsin Statute 19.351(i).
