At a special public board meeting held Friday, November 1, the Montclair Board of Education unanimously voted to appoint attorney Mark Tabakin to conduct an investigation into the suspected unauthorized release of proprietary/confidential District assessments. The resolution also calls for Mr. Tabakin to investigate other incidents of conduct that may be contrary to the Board’s best interest, as may be disclosed by further investigation.
Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:6-19 and 20, the Montclair Board of Education authorized Mr. Tabakin to issue subpoenas that require recipients to provide relevant documents or testimony. “The goal is to find out who was responsible for releasing the assessments. In addition, we will investigate who knew what and when they knew it as there may be conduct contrary to the Board’s best interest,” Mr. Tabakin said.
