School Committee and Open Meeting Law Violations

Last night at the school committee meeting, 

the chair of the SC announced that there 

had been an open meeting violation 

filed and completed.  Actually there were two.

The first was for having an executive session 

meeting to discuss wages for Teaching

Assistants and Cafeteria workers.  

The second was for not providing 

the minutes in a timely fashion and 

not providing them to a citizen 

upon request in a timely fashion.

The AG did find that both violations 

did happen but considers neither to be 

intentional, and “we commend the 

Committee for acknowledging the 

latter violation and adopting a policy 

intended to prevent similar violations 

in the future”

However there are six footnotes 

in the finding which point to the 

seriousness of the violations.
