The Paper lodges complaint against Metro school board
By Emma Rausch
 
The Paper of Wabash County filed a formal complaint against the MSD School Board on Thursday, July 28, with the Public Access Counselor.
 
The complaint requests an advisory opinion from Luke Britt, appointed PAC, to determine if the Board’s July 12 vote to reconfigure the school district violated Indiana’s Open Door Law.
 
“We believe, after consulting with the Hoosier State Press Association, that the Metro Board acted illegally and violated the Indiana Open Door Law,” Editor Joseph Slacian said.
 
In its objection, The Paper asserts that the violation stemmed from the Board’s actions to plan a district-wide reconfiguration during at least three executive sessions including those on June 8, June 14 and July 7, which were advertised as meetings that would discuss personnel matters.

City Schools Business Manager Matt Stone was on hand to ask permission. A City Council hearing on the budget is scheduled for Aug. 22.
 
Because the Wabash City Schools Board is one of about 13 statewide that is still appointed, state law gives the appointing body final say on the school budget.
