PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Portsmouth woman has complained to the state attorney general's office after saying she was illegally denied access to her 10-year-old daughter's school health records.
The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/1wRJEeD ) reports that Kristel Massarotti claims in the letter she repeatedly tried to get the fifth-grader's records from Portsmouth Middle School, but the school department only agreed to a partial release of the information.
The department, according to the complaint, said in a response that the additional records she requested were not public information.
Massarotti says her daughter has a medical condition and has a plan under the state's rehabilitation law.
The attorney general's office said it was reviewing the complaint.
School officials were not available for comment during the Christmas holiday.
