(2) The college reserves the right to redact information from public records in any case where such information is exempt from disclosure. A reasonable time shall be allowed for redacting the exempt information. Responses to requests for public records that contain redacted documents shall be accompanied by an exemption log that identifies the redacted document and contains a written statement describing the applicable exemption, the legal citation to the exemption, and a brief description of how the exemption applies to the redacted information.

(3) All denials of requests for public records, whether in part or in whole, must be accompanied by an exemption log containing a description of the document (including the type of record, the number of pages, its date and unless otherwise protected, the name of its author and recipient) a written statement describing the applicable exemption, the legal citation to the exemption, and a brief description of how the exemption applies to the record being withheld or redacted. Where use of any identifying features whatever would reveal protected content, records may be designated by a numbered sequence.

(4) The release or disclosure of student educational records is governed by federal regulation, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Separate and different standards and procedures may apply to requests for student educational records.
