Ohio school district hides superintendent resumes to avoid disclosure

Cincinnati Public School District in Ohio has gone through three superintendent searches since 2000.

In one of the searches, “the board only learned of a tawdry sexual harassment scandal involving one semifinalist after the Enquirer named him as a candidate, and members of the public started doing their own research.”

So the board had one of those brilliant, brilliant ideas that only come around in a blue moon:

They are having applicants for the position send their resumes to a P.O. Box in Corryville and no one in the district will go to the P.O. Box and look to see what is inside until March 16, which happens to be the 2nd day of Sunshine Week this year.

Not everybody thinks that this tactic means that the board has actually managed to avoid the legal requirements of the Ohio Open Records Act but I begrudge no one their illusions.
