The Springfield school board secretary says new procedures are in place to make sure that executive session meetings are properly recorded.
The new system was set up following revelations that portions of three separate meetings were not recorded.
In each case, the missing recordings pertain to the school board’s agreement to part ways with former superintendent Walter Milton.
Board secretary Julie Hammers… who is not in the room during executive session meetings… says it appears that a board member simply hit a wrong button, stopping the recording when he thought he was actually starting it.
She says she will be able to visually monitor those recordings in the future to be sure that they are working… even though she won’t listen in on the closed-door discussions.
