The Moberly School District is responding to a claim by the state Attorney General that a district form violates state law. Superintendent Dr. Dustin Fanning says Eric Schmitt is mistaken in saying that it’s a consent form to record Individual Education Plan and Section 504 meetings.

Fanning says the district has not denied any request to record one of these meetings, which are used to determine accommodation for students with special needs. Fanning says the district needs to know when meetings are being recorded.

Fanning says the district is considering the next steps.

Fanning was asked if he felt the the attorney general’s letter was prompted by an actual concern or was merely a political stunt.

The district has posted its response to Schmitt’s office on its website.
