Ariz. School Board Official Allegedly Kept Dossier of Parents Who Opposed CRT

'These allegations are deeply troubling, especially as concerns the photography of a minor child without parental consent and the taking down of license plate numbers...'

Jann–Michael Greenburg, president of Arizona’s Scottsdale Unified Public School District, was alleged to possess a dossier containing the names of parents who opposed Critical Race Theory, the Post Millennial reported.

The dossier included information concerning 47 parents, as well as photos of their children.

Amanda Wray—mother of several young girls in the district—was particularly upset by the discovery.

“When I first saw the contents of the Google Drive and I saw my 8- and 10-year-old’s photos, that was terrifying. And like, what’s he doing?” she told AZFamily.com.

“But he has pictures of my vacation home, property records. I’m not a political opponent, I’m an involved parent and that is threatening to me and it makes me wonder why and what he was planning to do with those photos,” she said.

“I think we identified 47 people that were background checked, divorce decrees, Social Security numbers, property records, mortgages,” she added.

Greenburg was exposed by investigative journalist Christopher Rufo, who tweeted out the information and called for Greenburg’s resignation.

“Scottsdale Unified school board President Jann–Michael Greenburg has been caught assembling a dossier with confidential information on parents who oppose critical race theory,” he wrote. “Including photographs of their children. He must resign.”

After many parents expressed their frustration with the school bureaucrat, Greenburg “categorically” denied having knowledge of the dossier.

“If you are going to claim in a story right now, that I had anything to do with this, I would argue that crosses the line,” he said.

“We are going to have forensic IT staff look into this and figure out what that is,” he added. “You can file with law enforcement—I am not sure even why we are looking at these photos.”

Nonetheless, many parents remain unpersuaded.

“We cannot allow anyone in a leadership position to secretly compile personal documents and information on moms and dads who have dared speak out publicly or on social media about their grievances with the district,” said Amy Carney, a mother of six students in Scottsdale’s school district.

“We request President Greenburg’s resignation from the Governing Board effective immediately for this and other recent embarrassments to our district,” she added.

Once the allegations are confirmed, Greenburg could face legal charges.

“These allegations are deeply troubling, especially as concerns the photography of a minor child without parental consent and the taking down of license plate numbers of parents who Mr. Greenberg supposedly perceived as political opponents,” said Alexander Kolodin, a lawyer working for Davillier Law Group.

According to Kolodin, Greenburg could “potentially be liable for violations of Arizona’s Parents’ Bill of Rights, which recognizes a parent’s ‘fundamental’ right to consent before the government makes a video or voice recording of the minor child.”

The School District issued a statement of denial following the revelation in hopes of curbing parent anger directed at Greenburg.
