Sunshine Law Tweaked to Help Schools with Safety Planning (October 27, 2018)

Earlier this week, Gov. Wolf signed Act 156 of 2018, formerly Senate Bill 1078 , which amends the Sunshine Act to allow public agencies, including school boards, to discuss security measures in executive sessions. The new law complements Act 39 of 2018, which amends the PA School Code to allow public school entities, such as school boards, to go into executive session to discuss matters related to school safety.
