Dallas ISD Final Investigation Report - OPR Case No.11335 - Rebecca Rodriguez - Superintendent Mike Miles

The citizens of Dallas pay the bills at Dallas ISD. Taxpayers and stakeholders have a right to know.

The Texas Public Information Act clearly states that a completed report or investigation prepared for a public institution is public information and is not excepted from required disclosure.

Texas Government Code - Chapter 552. Public Information
"Sec. 552.001. Policy; Construction.
"(a) ... The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created. The provisions of this chapter shall be liberally construed to implement this policy.
"(a) without limiting the amount or kind of information that is public information under this chapter, the following information is public information and not excepted from required disclosure unless made confidential under this chapter or other law:
(1) a completed report, audit, evaluation, or investigation made of, for, or by a governmental body, except as provided by Section 552.108 (Exception: Certain Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Prosecutorial Information)"
