“Schools’ Secret Session Notes Under Wraps
“By Kyle Alspach
“FITCHBURG — The School Committee met in secret sessions eight times in 2005, but has yet to release any records of those meetings to the public.
“The Massachusetts Open Meeting Law allows public boards to meet privately about some issues.
“But the records may only remain secret as long as ‘publication may defeat the lawful purposes’ of the session, according to the law.”
