School Committee Chairwoman Kim Williams says that the Norfolk County district attorney’s office has received a complaint about the committee.
The complaint came from Citizens for Accountability and Responsibility in Education, or CARE, a local group formed last year after Eric Matez, a popular third-grade teacher, was fired. The CARE complaint alleges that the school committee violated open meeting laws last February when it scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the Matez situation.
Williams said the School Committee complied with the law, convening the meeting in open session and then going into executive session to discuss the personnel matter.
The school district’s attorney is drafting a response to the complaint, Williams said.
