Petitioner alleged that the Red Clay Consolidated School Board must have held a nonpublic meeting based on the Board President’s statement to a parent that the majority of the Board agreed with a decision of the principal of A.I. DuPont High School to cancel the remainder of the boys basketball season. HELD: Sworn affidavits demonstrate that the principal provided this information to the Board President, but no evidence was found of a quorum or constructive quorum of the Board meeting to discuss the matter. While no FOIA violation was found, the Board is nonetheless cautioned to avoid any representation that it discussed or decided public business if it had not.
