Reversed.
Board of Education sought direct administrative review of finding of IELRB that it committed unfair labor practice when it refused to release student records during grievance proceeding for high school security officer’s termination who allegedly initiated fights with students. Union’s willingness to accept redacted version of students’ disciplinary records does not remove records from protection of Student Records Act. Section 6(a)(6) of Act does not permit disclosure without a court order, as duty to disclose is circumscribed by Board’s bona fide confidentiality concerns.(HYMAN and NEVILLE, concurring.)
