Sunshine concerns about school board 'retreat'

(STAFF)

On March 22nd, School Board Members, Superintendent and Superintendent’s staff participated in a board 'retreat' at Silverthorn Country Club from 10AM to 3:30PM. Concerns arose over potential Sunshine violations due to the district’s failure to publish a public notice for the training session.

At the Regular School Board meeting on April 11th, School District Attorney Dennis Alfonso commented that it was less of a retreat and more of a board training program, which was discussed at a public meeting months earlier “and several dually noticed public workshops.”
