State AG's Office: Valdosta BOE is breaking the law

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The state Attorney General was saying Wednesday that the Valdosta Board Of Education was breaking the law.

The AG's office sent a letter this week to the school district's attorney saying the board is violating the open meetings act. After each meeting, the board goes into closed executive session and "approves the superintendent's recommendations" without saying what those recommendations are until the next day.

The AG's office said they must tell the public what is being voted on at the start of the meetings.

As of Wednesday, the district had not taken any action regarding the letter.

WALB reached out to the Attorney General's Office for comment Wednesday, but were told that no one was available for comment.
