Assemblywoman Aura Dunn has introduced legislation that would require state's school boards to publicly post full agendas 48 hours before meetings.
A boards of education currently only have to provide an annual notice with meeting dates and locations, but not agendas.
Dunn cited the recent controversy over the school calendar in Randolph as one of the reasons that a change is necessary.
In a statement, she said, "The Randolph Board of Education shortchanged the process, and instead of recognizing they may have acted hastily and made a mistake, doubled down out of pride. As elected officials, we must always be willing to respectfully listen to the public who entrusted us to serve the greater good, and allow ourselves to evolve."
Dunn also introduced another bill that would require public schools to post curriculum plans online and allow families to inspect textbooks and other classroom learning materials.
