District 86 votes to settle lawsuit with former board member Dianne Barrett
HINSDALE – The Hinsdale District 86 Board of Education voted Monday to end the three-year litigation between the district and Dianne Barrett with the end result being improved access to necessary information for board members, and a limit to further litigation costs for the district’s taxpayers, according to a news release from District 86.
Board president Claudia Manley said the settlement should put the three-year case behind the district and minimize any further legal costs. Manley said the settlement awards no monetary compensation to Barrett as she did not seek any, according to the release.
During the meeting, Manley noted that the policy revisions that will be made to replace Board Policy 2:225 will remove restrictions from board members’ access to internal district information, while maintaining mandated protection of student and other confidential records. Manley emphasized that this was an important step in guaranteeing that elected representatives on the board will have the necessary information to ensure vendors and contractors remain accountable to the public.
