Even though the state found the school board at fault for breaking the Open Meeting Law, the attorney general’s office will “forgo prosecution” if the school board agrees to a settlement, according to an offer made to the school board.
The school board unanimously accepted the state’s offer on Tuesday without debate.
In the settlement, the school board acknowledged that all seven of its members violated the Open Meeting Law by participating in the March 24 vote, even though two of them opposed the vote. Board members Nick Smith and Veronica Frenkel voted against Davis’ hire, requesting more time for consideration and public notice.
And so it goes...
