Subject: Re: [PG-Politics] Recent school board actions
What gives the school board the right to meet in secret, even at a retreat? The board is subject to the State Open Meetings Act (State Government Article, Title 10, subtitle 5) and, except for a short list of topics, such as personnel cases or collective bargaining, must conduct all of its business in public.
When I served on the (councilmanic) Redistricting Commission, we were told by the lawyers that a quorum of the commission could not meet anywhere and discuss matters relating to the commission's business.
Unless they let the public observe their "retreat" (assuming anyone want to go to St. Michaels), this will be just one more example of the school board breaking the law.
