The Arizona board of education has followed through on its promise to sue to force state schools chief Diane Douglas to give remote computer access to board investigators and to redirect Web traffic to the board’s new website.
The board has been trying to get remote computer access to teacher files Douglas controls since it moved out of her offices in May. The investigators probe complaints against teachers and determine if the state board should consider revoking their teaching certificates.
Douglas’ staff has said she will not allow remote access to education department files because they contain sensitive information that must be protected.
