Parents of students in the Scottsdale Unified School District were shocked to discover that a school board member had secretly compiled a dossier detailing parents who opposed critical race theory.
The dossier was compiled on Google Drive and contained a list of parents who objected to teachings about CRT; it included photographs of both the parents and their children.
Parents who had been calling for the recall of Governing Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg are now demanding he resign over the secret dossier, to which he had access.
"I am calling for the immediate resignation of our board president Jann-Michael Greenburg," said Amy Carney, a mother of six, who is now running for a seat on the Scottsdale Governing Board.
"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," she added.
The dossier included a trove of information on 47 parents, including home addresses, phone numbers, mortgage data, traffic tickets, family members, and social security numbers.
One of the videos on the drive showed Greenburg's father wearing a bodycam before going out to record video of the parents.
The dossier was discovered when Greenburg sent a screenshot of his desktop to a parent that displayed the address of the link to the Google Drive.
Amanda Wray told KTVK-TV that she saw photographs of her children on the dossier and was horrified.
"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?" said Wray.
"But he has pictures of my vacation home, property records," she added. "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."
The district said in the letter that Greenburg could only be removed if he was recalled, if he resigned, or if he was voted out in the next election.
Attorney Alexander Kolodin told the Arizona Free News that Greenburg and his father could face criminal charges related to intimidation.
