This letter was sent after attending board meetings since around mid December 2018. After attending a couple board meetings, I started seeing a theme around transparency and community involvement being a main objective of the board. Sometime in January I started studying the Illinois Open Meetings Act and how it applied. After learning about the details of what the law requires and missing being able to attend the sub-committee meetings rescheduled to early February, I paid closer attention to the requirements for meeting posting for the main 2/20 meeting. After seeing that the requirements were not met for that meeting, I then wrote this letter and sent it to the Superintendent late evening on 2/28.
