Southlake, TX. (ECWd) –

FOX4-KDFW is reporting that two Carroll ISD School Board Trustees were indicted by a grand jury and arrested for violating the Texas Open Meetings Act.

They are accused of circumventing the TOMA by “communicating in a quorum” outside of an open meeting through the use of text messaging. The charge is a misdemeanor “conspiring to circumvent for secret deliberation” – by discussing board business, specifically the Cultural Competence Action Plan, in a series of private text messages.

    Very good reporting. Jail time May teach them a thing or 2. We can only hope.

    This article does not pertain to Illinois. It is discussing a school in Texas which also has the initials ISD. This is NOT the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD.) We do not want someone to have the incorrect idea that this pertains to our state school, which currently does not have any issues with its board members. Thank you,

      All Texas schools are ISD – Independent School District. No one implied anything whatsoever pertaining to the Illinois school for the deaf..

    Arrests like these need to happen in Illinois. Maybe we would not have elected officials violating open meetings act as often as they do.

    The report stated it was in Texas. It is still good reporting. There is good and bad everywhere not just Illinois.. Thanks ECWd, or watching out in all areas and all states worth reporting about.
