The AJC is reporting that the Clayton County School Board is denying that they illegally met in closed session after an explanation was demanded by the Attorney General’s office for why they, in fact, did exactly that.
On Tuesday, Clayton board attorney Dorsey Hopson sent a letter to the attorney general saying the board did not “knowingly and willingly” violate the law when it met privately with SACS. […] In his letter Tuesday, Hopson did not address the other allegations raised by the state, including why the board has conducted all its business behind closed doors on several occasions during the past few months. The board also did not respond to questions about missing sworn affidavits stating the reason for closing meetings. The law requires the board chair to sign an affidavit after every closed session.
