Executive Session (1 VSA 313) (If Needed) (Mot. Req.): f. confidential attorney-client communications: In accordance with Vermont’s Open Meeting Law requirements, I move that the Board find that premature general public knowledge of the discussion of confidential attorney-client communications made for the purpose of providing professional legal services to the body; would clearly place the School Board at a substantial disadvantage, because the School Board risks disclosing trial strategy and issues that would put the District at a big disadvantage if known publicly. I further move that the Board enter into Executive Session to discuss confidential attorney-client communications, under the provisions of Title 1, Section 313(a) (1) of the Vermont Statutes.
