After close to an hour and a half, the board returned to open session. Board President Matt Elder addressed the meeting in a statement saying, “While in executive session, the board held confidential communications with its attorney concerning a pending confidential investigation of an incident involving the discovery of a firearm on campus the board having been advised by its attorney that disclosure would seriously impair the ability of the board to conduct the pending confidential investigation, pursuant to Oklahoma Statutes, tit. 25, § 307(B)(1)(4) and (7).”
