Student Learning Committee agenda

The Student Learning Committee will meet this afternoon and, according to their agenda, they will have a preliminary discussion on forming a program placement policy.

The District does not have a program placement policy right now. Instead, program placements are made entirely at the Superintendent's discretion, so long as they comply with District policies, state laws, and federal laws.

Due to their interpretation of a Policy, the Board Student Learning Committee reviewed a program placement decision this year and discovered that the program placement process is capricious, thoughtless, careless, and politically driven. The decision was made without data, without considering the best interests of the students, and without considering public input. Everyone was pretty shocked by what they found squiggling under that rock.
