(Bettendorf, IA) -- The Bettendorf school board is agreeing to settle a lawsuit arguing the district violated Iowa law by blocking parents and journalists from attending a public meeting.

The Iowa Freedom of Information Council and four local news outlets filed a lawsuit against the board for violating Iowa's public meeting law in May 2022.

The district will now have to pay $6,500 to repay the plaintiffs for attorney fees as part of the settlement.
