A Colorado appeals court has ruled that public school teachers' sick-leave records are not part of a confidential personnel file and must be disclosed to the public, if requested.

The Jefferson County teachers' union had argued that teacher-absence records are private.

The ruling affects the release of names of teachers at four high schools who called in sick over two days in 2014. Some teachers said at the time they were protesting proposed changes to the district's curriculum and compensation.
