The Williamsville Board of Education has scheduled an emergency special meeting tonight.
The board posted notice this afternoon that it intends to meet and immediately close the session to the public to discuss "particular person(s) and legal matters."
Board members did not give additional details regarding what they intend to talk about.
The state's open meetings law allows boards to close their meetings to the public to discuss only certain subjects, including "proposed, pending or current litigation," as well as "the medical, financial, credit or employment history of a particular person or corporation, or matters leading to the appointment, employment, promotion, demotion, discipline, suspension, dismissal or removal of a particular person or corporation."
The Williamsville meeting will be held at 7:15 p.m. tonight in the district office boardroom at 105 Casey Road, East Amherst. See the meeting notice here.
Update: Board President Michael Littman said Wednesday that the board met in closed session for about 90 minutes to discuss a "personnel situation" and did not take action once the meeting re-opened to the public.
