Two sections of SB 1566 seem to take potshots at school superintendents. Section 2 permits the board to require certain school staff members to participate in an executive session, and then says:
A superintendent may not interfere with an appearance or testimony required by the board under this section.
Of course it’s up to the school board to determine who should join them in a closed session. Superintendents should not interfere with that, but I’m surprised to see that a law about that is necessary. Must be a story behind this one.
Tomorrow we will cover the other section of this new law that superintendents might take exception to.
DAWG BONE: THE CLOSED SESSION IS THE BOARD’S PARTY.
File this one under: LEGISLATION 2017
Tomorrow: Local control? Or controlling the locals?
