Secret Meeting to Hire New Ed Chief by Los Angeles School Board

On April 20, 2018, the school Board went into closed session and voted to hire Austin Beutner. However, as contained in the EAPD Complaint:

“Board members never announced that the Board had selected a candidate, the name of the candidate they had selected, that a vote had occurred, the outcome of the vote, or how or whether each board member had voted in the decision in the April 20 closed meeting.

The only report that did occur indicated that no vote happened and that the session was adjourned for lack of a quorum. That’s obviously a bald-faced lie! This is the kind of Brown Act violation that the statute was written to enforce.
