August 2018 A student receives an email from the Board Chair Peter Boehringer. It states that the student letters coming to the Board in 2018 were being redacted by an unnamed person(s) prior to the Board seeing them. In the email he commits to no longer following the Boards unwritten 2018 policy of redacting student letters. This students ULS email was subsequently hacked and access has not yet been restored.
