Open meeting law complaint filed


A parent who claims the Clark County School District violated state open meeting law requirements during a March zoning meeting has filed a complaint with the Nevada attorney general's office.

Lamping Elementary School parent Kevin Donovan said the district did not post the meeting agenda within the required time frame, giving two days' notice to the public instead of three. He also said that the actual meeting agenda was substantially different from the one originally posted.

The March 4 meeting involved the School Board and the Attendance Zone Advisory Commission.

Donovan is challenging the decisions made at that meeting, which decided 2008-09 attendance boundaries for schools.

"This lack of proper public notification cannot be condoned and the actions passed in this meeting must be withdrawn immediately as the public in no way was prepared," Donovan stated in his complaint.

The attorney general's office has notified Donovan that it has received his complaint. No information was given on when a decision would be made.
