FMLA Medical Information Release?

My spouse is the superintendent of a very small school district in Minnesota. He has approved intermittent FMLA leave for his own serious health condition, as well he has approved FMLA for my own serious health condition. Out of the blue, the school board (who also approved these leaves at public board meetings) has started requiring him to go above and beyond the district's own FMLA policy, by tracking his absences in a separate spreadsheet that would be sent to the board monthly, and they are also asking that his original medical certification be released to them as the board wants additional information about his FMLA and counsel to review it. My question is mainly regarding the release of the medical certification - it's a bit tricky as the full board (6 members) act as his supervisor, however he is employed by the school district, not the board. Once leave is approved, can they do this? I understand they could ask him to rectify, however that is not what they're asking him to do. They want access to the specific medical information that is on his original certification. Thanks in advance!
