The school committee, a governmental body, shall maintain accurate records of its meetings, setting forth the date, time, place, members present or absent and action taken at each meeting, including executive sessions. The minutes of each meeting shall become a public record and shall be available to the public upon approval of the minutes by the school committee. However, the minutes of any executive session may remain secret as long as publication may defeat the lawful purposes of the executive session, but no longer. Documents and other exhibits shall be a part of the official record of the session.
