The School Board met in a work session last Tuesday. Along with Board attorney David Cates, Director of Finance Jim Evans, Director of Curriculum and Instruction Joy Goshert, and Superintendent Tom Edington, they refined policies dealing with school operations. Criminal background checks for employees and volunteers, school safety measures, food service, wellness, transportation by private vehicle, and insurance were among the topics covered.
The Board will continue policy work sessions through the end of 2008 to update policies. The new policies will be available online by late spring of 2009. The next work policy work session on certified and classified employee policies is set for 4:00 pm on October 7.
