The Norfolk School Committee violated state open meeting laws last year, according to the Norfolk County district attorney’s office.
The school committee called an emergency meeting on Feb. 7, 2006, to discuss the controversial firing of a teacher. The committee then went into executive session, where it finalized the superintendent’s contract.
The district attorney’s office ruled that there was not sufficient reason to call an emergency meeting or to go into executive session.
The School Committee has since re-voted on the superintendent’s contract in open session, and a spokesperson for the district attorney said that act remedied the situation.
