The Kansas Open Records Act recognizes that some records contain information which is private in nature. For this reason, the act lists a number of exceptions, which are found in K.S.A. 45-221. Records which are closed for this reason may include:
Personnel information of public employees
Medical treatment records
Records which are protected by the attorney-client privilege or the rules of evidence
Records containing personal information compiled for Census purposes
Notes and preliminary drafts
Records that are closed pursuant to Kansas or Federal Law
