To the Editor:
This letter is in response to the Board of Education chair, Loretta Chory’s, Letter to the Editor on April 14. Mrs. Chory said my statements were “false” regarding the BOE withholding information. The truth of the matter is that she has withheld supplemental information by not following the Charter, Chapter II Section 5B, which requires all boards, commissions, and committees to provide to the public any supplemental information that is to be discussed at a public meeting and that those documents are to be available to the public 48 hours in advance of the meeting. This violation of the Charter’s 48-hour requirement has occurred multiple times either at Regular Board meetings or at BOE subcommittee meetings in the months of December 2015 and January through April of this year. I have written Mrs. Chory inquiring about missing supplemental information — nothing changed. Mrs. Chory in her Letter to the Editor also said to reach out to her with any questions. I have reached out to her by way of public comment and again via email regarding how a parent is to provide feedback if we do not know what is to be presented? No reply.
