Willmar School Board has workshop meeting Monday

WILLMAR — The Willmar School Board will meet at 4:30 p.m. Monday in the board room at the Willmar Education and Arts Center.

The board will be a workshop meeting, and the boards plans to take no formal action.

The agenda includes an update on early childhood programs and a discussion of board members’ roles and responsibilities.

The discussion of board member roles will be led in part by Minneapolis attorney Trevor Helmers, who advised the board when it closed a meeting to discuss unspecified allegations against the entire school board.

A lawyer for the Minnesota Newspaper Association said at the time that the board violated the state’s Open Meeting Law in the way it closed the meeting.

After a non-public investigation and a two-hour meeting behind closed doors, board members decided there was no need for any disciplinary action. The nature of the allegations against the district’s elected officials has never been disclosed.
