SMMUSD Revising and updating district policies (update)

 

SMMUSD is embarking on a process of reviewing and updating all its policies, administrative regulations, and related exhibits.  The second of four board meetings to review the new draft policies was held last night, May 28. The third discussion will be during the June 4 meeting, which begins at 5:30pm at the district office. A fourth meeting to discuss the draft policies is scheduled for June 10 at 6:00pm.

 

It was agreed that California School Boards Association Board (CSBA) policies would serve as an example for that comparative review and in November a series of workshops were conducted with appropriate staff and a consultant from CSBA to review each District Policy, administrative regulation, and exhibit along side those of CSBA and make recommended changes to the Board.  Previous revisions made to policies that reflect the specific interests of SMMUSD have not been altered (as long as those revisions are compliant with state and federal law). 

 

The following policies came forward for a first reading on May 14, 2009.  They will return for action at a future meeting.  If members of the public would like to comment on these policies, please contact Sarah Wahrenbrock in the Superintendent's Office at swahrenbrock@smmusd.org.  The public comment period for the 2000, 4000, and 9000 series will end on June 19, 2009.
