During a special noontime meeting of the Las Vegas City Schools board, members quickly called for a vote to go behind closed doors. The only item on the agenda was limited personnel matters relating to the superintendent and school matters.

After about an hour, board members returned to public session and board President Phillip Vigil an-nounced that no action was taken, and the meeting was adjourned. None of the members would talk to the Optic about what was discussed.

Superintendent Rick Romero’s contract was renewed for another year on March 17 and he was not at the meeting because he was attending the 2009 spring budget workshop in Albuquerque sponsored by the state Public Education Department.
