meeting is to address Policy 5111, the policy establishing legal settlement

contained more than 40 amended policies in a packet of more than 100 pages.
The announcement of
a special meeting on Policy 5111 follows the release of a formal legal
opinion from Indiana Public Access Counselor Luke H. Britt that the Board’s
first adoption of the policy did not comply with Indiana Open Door Law
