Attorney General: School Board's Deal With Milton Violated Open Meetings Act


New review, same result. 

 

The Illinois Attorney General’s Office has once again concluded that Springfield school board members violated the state Open Meetings Act last year with the way it handled its deal to part company with former superintendent Walter Milton. 

 

The office had earlier ruled that the board violated the act by signing the agreement behind closed doors, but a judge overturned that.  However, the AG’s office was directed to review the board’s actions again, and concluded that it violated the act by voting without discussing the terms of the deal ahead of time. 

 

The opinion is binding, but contains no fines or other penalties against the school board.
