A lawsuit was recently filed against the Lakota Local School District Board of Education in the Butler County Court of Common Pleas. That lawsuit alleges that the Board of Education violated the Open Meetings Act by failing to properly produce sufficient meeting minutes for a few of its meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our attorneys at Frost Brown Todd are currently reviewing the claims against the District. 


Lakota Local Schools has taken numerous steps to be entirely transparent with the Lakota community—including making videos of the Board’s meetings since 2014 available on the District’s website that show all of the Board’s meetings, deliberations, and decisions. We wish this could have been resolved without legal recourse.
