Judge Rules Springfield School Board Did Not Violate Open Meetings Act


A Sangamon County judge has ruled that the Springfield school board did not violate the Open Meetings Act when members in closed session signed an agreement that led to the departure of former superintendent Walter Milton.

 

That ruling contradicts an opinion from the Illinois attorney general’s office that executing that agreement behind closed doors, without prior public notice, was improper.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that Judge Steven Nardulli was still critical of the board, saying that their actions created an appearance of impropriety, even if they weren’t technically improper.

 

Nardulli also called for further study into whether the board might have violated the law by failing to publicly discuss the terms of the agreement before re-approving it later in open session.
