The St. Clair County Board of Education went into executive session at its last meeting. Board attorney John Rea said that the Alabama Open Meetings Law allows the board to go into executive session to discuss the consideration to offer for the purchase of real estate.

“That’s what the topic of this executive session is,” Rea said. “The law requires that we have a motion, a second, and then a recorded vote of each board member with a roll call vote. It also requires us to establish a length of time that we estimate the session to be. Then we will reconvene after that.”

Board president Scott Suttle estimated they would be in executive session for 20 minutes. The BOE went into executive session, stayed 20 minutes, came back out to reconvene and adjourned the meeting.
