Only three of eight members showed up for the Treme Charter School Association’s monthly board meeting, April 28.

After waiting about an hour for other members to appear, the board, which runs McDonogh 42 Elementary Charter School cancelled the meeting for lack of a quorum.

A message was sent to members last week in an attempt to confirm whether a quorum would be in attendance, but those present said some members took the message to mean that there would be no quorum and therefore no meeting.

The meeting was rescheduled.
