School Board has closed sessions

From Staff Reports

Webster County School District board members met in executive sessions twice in the same week last month, records show.

The first session was during the board’s second regular monthly meeting on Sept. 11 and the next was during a special meeting at 9 a.m. Sept. 14, according to board minutes.

Board members voted to go into executive session Sept. 11 to discuss a discipline matter involving a Eupora High School student. The session during the latter meeting was to discuss and review the disciplinary committee actions and procedures.

No action was taken during either executive session, minutes of both meetings reflect.

No other item was on the agenda of the special meeting. On Sept. 11, the board approved a revision to the policy titled “Section 504- Americans with Disabilities Act Nondiscrimination,” which was tabled at the previous meeting.

The board tabled the matter of amending the current Qualified School Construction Bonds project plans.
