The Pleasanton school board held a special board meeting Friday morning and gave direction to legal counsel on the discipline, release or dismissal of a public employee.
There was no vote or action taken, according to Pleasanton schools superintendent Parvin Ahmadi.
The name and position of the public employee were not released.
Trustees Chris Grant and Joan Laursen were not present at the meeting.
The public was not made aware of the 7:30 a.m. Friday morning meeting until Wednesday evening. However, the Brown Act states that only 24-hour notice is required for a special meeting.
According to trustee Jamie Hintzke, an upcoming deadline caused the last-minute special board meeting.
"I'm disappointed at the board," said Bill Foley during open session. "You owe it to the community to communicate and be open about your meetings."
