The Lawrence Journal World persist in having problems getting requested records concerning Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, KS. “The Lawrence Journal World has filed numerous open records request with several federal agencies seeking the investigative reports mentioned by Haskell. So far, those requests have not been met." Should there be a Freedom of Information Act Investigation into Haskell Indian Nations University as a whole? The Lawrence Journal World is seeking records about athletes grades being changed, but does an investigation need to go further than the athletic department ? Haskellnews commentary has received many e-mails regarding changing of student grades. Most saying the problem goes further than Haskell’s athletic department? Stating non-athletic students whose names were/are removed from the dorm’s eligibly list due to low GPA's are often readmitted to the dorms once their grades were/are changed to a higher grade? The Lawrence Journal World may want to file a Freedom of Information Act for any and all student records that have been changed by all Haskell instructors. Getting a list of readmitted dorm students over the last two years might be a good start along with seeing if Venida Chenault ever approved changing students grades? haskellnews commentary 09/17/2012 Link: Haskell: ‘Corrective actions’ taken on athletics program by Shaun Hittle LJWorld.com September 13, 2012

Grades could of been changed so to keep numbers up in her very useless AIS program....

The grade changing incident occurred while Dr. Chenault was doing her visiting scholarship at the University of Kansas. Don't try to deflect the issue on to someone else when anyone within the Haskell community knows the grade changing incident occurred while Warner, Juneau and the rest of the cronies were at the helm.

We are sure this is not from what 3 years ago? Why does Venita Chenault keep getting put on these details? We agree a full investigation would clear up this whole matter. Keep up the good work Lawrence Journal World. Don't give up. @ drillsgt We agree with you. Where are the monies going from the sports programs, NOT into AIS we hope.

I am a grad student at KU. I have friends that attend Haskell. The Lawrence Journal World is correct in following up on records they requested. Why can't they get them? The LJW should call for an investigation of the entire school. How students are treated ( it's apparent they are not the school's priority or they would not have been left to suffer in a 100 + degree heat ) they have more two year degrees than four, the campus is not well maintained and food they are served is awful. I feel sorry for them. I hope someone will help them. Keep pushing the issue LJW.

Student records are sacred and protected by numerous laws. This issue came about decades ago due to the abuse by the media as well as federal and state agencies. You are asking for names of students and indirectly access to their academic records. The answer to this request must be a resounding no. It is not a freedom of information request.
