Dallas ISD Board Meeting Today Behind Closed Doors Might Violate Texas Open Meetings Act

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Wednesday, September 19, 2007

A scheduled Dallas ISD meeting of Trustees today raises several questions about the legality of the meeting under the Texas Open Meetings Act.

The Texas Open Meetings Act was passed to protect the right of the public to observe and be fully informed about public business conducted by public bodies.

A discussion of Trustee differences clearly falls within the concept of public business since the discussion relates to the differences of elected Trustees acting in their official role as Trustees.

Any such discussion should be open and public – not secret and hidden.
