Let’s try that again

Last week when the school board tried to meet to discuss the legal battle over Paul Vallas’ qualifications to serve as schools superintendent of the district, the board adjourned after a half-hour display of dysfunction.

The board will try again this week, with a meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 305 of City Hall. This time the meeting was posted far enough in advance to satisfy Freedom of Information requirements.

On the agenda: discussion and any appropriate action regarding legal fees concerning Lopez v Vallas, (a matter that is being appealed to the state Supreme Court and for which the city has hired outside legal counsel) as well as a discussion regarding transition planning and a search committee for a new schools superintendent.
