After making national news throughout this year, Loudoun County Public Schools in Loudoun County, Virginia, are being kept busy these days.
Parents and activists have filed over 500 Freedom of Information Act requests in 2021, according to Loudoun Now. The Freedom of Information Act allows for people to request public records for the sake of transparency, which includes communication between school administrators.
Most of these requests are to obtain information ranging from sexual assault cases to more politically driven issues.
According to Loudoun Now, roughly 40 percent of these requests came from six activists at the conservative group Fight for Schools.
As a result, the school system is now having more people handle the requests and is even asking some parents to pay a hefty fee to pay for the labor it takes to dig through documents.
