SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — New developments into the allegations that the head of the Scottsdale Unified School District kept a "dossier" of parent information. The district's superintendent, Dr. Scott Menzel, sent out a statement on Friday that said the district is hiring an "independent forensic investigator" to look into the private dossier.

SUSD said in a letter to parents Wednesday officials believe the Google Drive full of files on parents was created by Mark Greenburg, father of SUSD president Michael Greenburg. Menzel said the investigators will determine if any school resources were used to "compile, access or modify" the Google Drive. A special meeting of the Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board has been announced for Monday at 6 p.m. The agenda of the meeting will be posted the day before.

Parents have called for the resignation of Michael Greenburg after they discovered, on his computer, the Google Drive, which contained personal information, images and video of outspoken parents who are against certain district COVID-19 policies, like mask mandates. They found out about through an emailed screenshot that showed a link to the online drive.

An SUSD spokesperson said the district's hands are tied because Greenburg is an elected official. The only way to get him out of office is by recall, resignation or he's voted out next year.

The Scottsdale Police Department released a statement on Saturday afternoon, saying they're aware of the allegations against Greenburg. The department says they will be conducting an investigation and anyone with information is asked to call (480) 312-5562.
