TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The USD 501 Board of Education wrapped up a special meeting with no word about what was discussed.

Topeka Public Schools sent notice just before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday that the session was called for 5:30 p.m. that night.

Board members convened at that time, and immediately went into executive session for what they said was a personnel matter. It initially was called for 45 minutes, but they extended it three times - first for another 45 minutes, then two additional 10-minute periods.

The executive session ended nearly two hours later, with the full meeting then adjourning with no comment on their discussion, and no action in public session.
