Ruling: School board didn't violate law

Staff report

The Graves County Board of Education didn't violate open meetings or open records laws in January, the Kentucky Attorney General's Office said in response to a complaint by a county resident.

The opinion stated: "The Graves County School Board complied with KRS 61.835 in promptly recording minutes of its Jan. 8, 2014 special meeting, setting forth an accurate record of the only vote or action taken and promptly making the minutes available for public inspection. The board was not required to summarize its discussion nor was it required to record what members said."

On Feb. 4, Graves County resident Richard Jackson requested the minutes of all Graves County school board meetings in January, including the agenda minutes. The following day, district officials provided the minutes from meetings held Jan. 8 and Jan. 14. Jackson appealed by letter on the grounds that the minutes were missing for the Jan. 8 meeting, which included a 90-minute discussion of school business with five members of the board, school administrative personnel and the board attorney present.

The opinion noted that minutes of meetings of public agencies are required to reflect only the formal actions taken and the votes cast by the members. The meeting minutes are not required to summarize the discussion or record what members said.

"We, of course, agree with this decision because it verifies that our Graves County School Board acted properly in the meetings and records called into question," Superintendent Kim Harrison said.
