In the San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday August 30, 1994 Excerpts from Nanette Asimov's article "Board Meets in Secret to See If It Can" The California State Board of Education will meet in secret next week to decide it may meet in secret. No one is saying what the meeting is about. That, according to a school board spokesman, is a secret. Secret meetings by public agencies are common. Secret meetings about secret meetings, athough legal, are less common. Pulic announcements about secret meetings about secret meetings are required by law. It's all explained in Govenment Code section 11126(q)(2)(a). And Government Code Section 11126(q)(2)(a) is explained in "Supplemental Agenda Notice #2", which the board mailed out this week. "The California State Board of Education reserves the right to meet in closed session pursuant to Government Code Section 11126(q)(2)(a) to determine whether facts and circumstances authorize it to meed in closed session pusuant to Government Code Section 11126(q)(2)(a)", said the announcement.
