February 23, 2010 (El Cajon) – In response to a request by East County Magazine, the Grossmont Union High School District has announced cancellation of tonight’s special meeting. As noted in our story earlier today , ECM notified the district that the meeting was in violation of Brown Act requirements because the district failed to provide 24 hours to media outlets that requested prior notice of special meetings, and because the public has not been provided any description of threatened litigation on a closed session agenda.


District spokesperson Catherine Martin said in an e-mail that the district did post a notice of its website on the District website, as well as in  display cases outside the lobby at the District Office and at the
back entrance of the building at 3:55 p.m. yesterday. Martin said a clerical delay resulted in media not receiving notification until 9:07 this morning.

ECM’s request for a written description of the threatened legal action has been referred to the District’s legal counsel.
