East Hampton Board of Education to redo vote after illegal executive session

Last week, the East Hampton Board of Education listed an executive session "to discuss a personnel matter" on its agenda. When board members came out of the executive session, they voted "to accept the recommendation made in executive session."

In a letter to the school board sent April 24, The Middletown Press raised concerns that this was an illegal executive session due to the lack of specifics on the agenda and during the vote.

Kevin Reich, assistant superintendent of schools, has responded with a letter saying the school board will at its May 13 meeting redo the vote taken after the April 23 executive session and have added specifics to the agenda item to make it valid.

The agenda item will say "Personnel matter regarding the employment status of a teacher. Anticipated motion: To reaffirm the action taken at the April 23, 2012, meeting to execute an agreement between a teacher, the union and the Board." BOEresponse
