Delaware AG Says State School Board Did Not Violate FOIA

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- The attorney general's office says Delaware's Board of Education did not violate open-meeting rules earlier this year in voting on a controversial Wilmington school redistricting plan.
State Rep. Kim Williams of Newport complained that the board violated the Freedom of Information Act in January when its executive director and president had side conversations with the panel's attorney.
The attorney general's office ruled Friday that that the conversations with the attorney did not involve a discussion by a quorum of board members
Addressing another Williams complaint, the ruling also noted that public bodies are not required to accept public comment at every meeting.
Williams introduced a bill this week requiring that members of the public be allowed to speak for at least one minute at every meeting of a public body.
