Abstract

"City" piece on the Portland School Committee and its policy sub-committee, which is considering adopting a new rule that would prohibit a majority of the nine-member board from engaging in e-mail discussions. Such messages, according to the board's attorney, could be construed as an attempt to conduct school business in private, and might be a violation of the state's open-meeting law, which prohibits three or more members of a school board from meeting privately to discuss public business. The policy group will bring its suggestions before the full committee later this year.
