Additionally, it has come to my attention (I was unable to attend this meeting due to a work meeting out of state) that the Board held a vote in executive session to prevent a board member from making and audio recording of the meeting (not sure that practice is permitted/not permitted). I believe that all votes must occur in public and not in an executive session. I am seeking to determine if this was a FOIA violation with the expectation that a determination as such would likely not yield a remediation beyond a response indicating the BOE will not hold any votes in executive session.
I am starting the see the public’s frustration with the CSD board and concerns in their capacity to serve Wilmington’s children. I am shock to hear voting took place during an executive session and “if true and in violation of open meeting law” I feel each and every board member in attendance should step-down.
I am starting to think the call to handover Christina’s Wilmington schools to Red Clay is more about failed board leadership than failed district administration ability to serve Wilmington’s at-risk students. But I know the Markell agenda goes deeper than that. However, the board’s actions appears to set their own rules is of concerning and may warrant an AG’s review .
Surely board member Young will be painted as a villain by exposing something possibly illegal or counter-productive. There will be board members pointing the finger at Young before asking themselves did we do something improper.
