The executive session began at 6 p.m. Campbell and Alabama Education Association attorney Jenna Bedsole came back at around 8:20 p.m., with Bedsole being called back into the executive session after about 20 minutes. The public hearing resumed at about 9:15.
Braswell said he could not identify which teacher was being disciplined because the teacher had asked for a closed hearing.
Bedsole said that, under the teacher tenure act, a teacher was allowed to request a private hearing and have their name kept confidential even if action was taken against them during a public meeting.
Further coverage of Monday’s school board meeting will appear in Wednesday’s Daily Home.
