Connecticut newspaper files FOI complaints against Board of Education

From The Westerly Sun

N. STONINGTON — The Westerly Sun has filed a Freedom of Information Act complaint against the Board of Education, alleging two violations. The complaint alleges that the board failed to give the public the required 24-hour notice of a meeting, and that its members cast anonymous votes on paper ballots.

On June 6, the board posted a meeting to be held that night. Billed as an emergency meeting, the agenda items included the 2012-13 budget, the transition to a new superintendent, end-of-year activities and an executive session to discuss board performance.
