Carrollton School Board of Education members met in executive session for an hour and 45 minutes immediately after opening the Nov. 8 meeting.
The session was to discuss compensation and investigation.
The board did not take action following the session, but as its final agenda item of the meeting, approved a resolution to release Attorney Lauren Tompkin’s final investigation report of allegations made against Superintendent Dr. David Quattrochi by school employees last year. The investigation was completed in early 2022.
The resolution is to waive the attorney-client privilege clause, saying it was done in order to be transparent with the community.
Board President Dan Ries said the Ohio Department of Education requested the report for an investigtion it is conducting in connection with allegations against Quattrochi.
“They requested the report so we felt we should release the report to the public,” he said.
The Messenger made a public records request for the documents Nov. 10.
