The Wayland School Committee’s blog, which explained the committee’s decisions and critiqued media coverage of the board, has been moved off the committee’s website after a 3-2 vote.
The committee’s former chair, Jeff Dieffenbach, started the blog in 2004, making the School Committee one of the first public boards in the western suburbs to host a blog.
It was intended to be a platform for the entire board, Dieffenbach said, but he was its primary user, and some board members suggested it didn’t reflect the feelings of all members.
The blog is now on Dieffenbach’s webpage where he critiques local media coverage of the blog’s move.
