The Atlanta school board’s ethics commission will meet Tuesday to consider a complaint eight board members filed against fellow board member Leslie Grant.

The board members say Grant shared confidential information about a real estate deal with a potential buyer after being told that the information should be kept private.

The ethics commission, a seven-person, independent board, is charged with hearing complaints of ethics violations against board members.

In order for the commission to begin an investigation, at least three members must vote yes.

The commission can reprimand a board member or recommend he or she be removed from office.

Under board policy, if the commission finds that a member has engaged in conflicts of interest or shared confidential information, the commission must recommend removal.
