West Ada postpones ‘happy hour’ executive session

West Ada district logoAs it turns out, the West Ada School Board will not meet after hours and behind closed doors this evening.

Trustees have called off an executive session that had been scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Friday.

The district’s website offered no explanation for the cancellation.

Trustees have a regularly scheduled meeting slated for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. It’s unclear whether the executive session will be held at that time; no agenda has been posted yet for Tuesday’s meeting, and district spokesman Eric Exline did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trustees in the state’s largest district have been sparring with Superintendent Linda Clark over a range of issues, including a one-year contract extension that had been discussed in a June executive session. On Sept. 29 — during a tumultuous board meeting punctuated by closed-door sessions and threats of recall elections — trustees voted to void that one-year extension.
