Wednesday, September 7th
First Day of School - do double-check what time your child's school starts and best of luck to all students, parents and schools! Kindergarteners do not start until September 12th.
School Board Meeting, starting at 4:15 pm. Agenda.
It's a fairly short agenda so I would expect a quick meeting.
In the Consent agenda - mostly pro forma type items voted on en masse - one curious thing:
- BTA IV: Resolution 2016/17-4: Racial Imbalance Analysis for Magnolia Elementary School Renovation and Addition Project – (Ops, August 16, for approval) Approval of this item would approve Resolution 2016/17-4, certifying that the proposed Magnolia Elementary School Renovation and Addition Project will not create or aggravate racial imbalance. (The Superintendent, in consultation with Lead Staff, has requested to postpone action on this item to the November 2nd Board meeting)
For example, Policy No. 3231 is regarding Student Records and there is interest from various community stakeholders (including parents) that want stricter rules governing student identifiable data. There has been a large national movement to include stricter guidelines with the use and handling of student data. It was not the scope of the Human Resource audit finding to revise any of the policies that relate to student data. The goal of this policy is to ensure staff understand the importance of identifiable data, whether it is for students, employees, or partners – and ensure that data is handled properly and confidentially.
