Raymore-Peculiar School District’s Board of Education will meet Thursday, May 24, at 7 p.m.
In addition to routine agenda items — such as selecting milk and bread suppliers for next year and hearing an enrollment analysis — board members will consider changing district policies.
All policy changes under consideration tonight are in response to the state’s new Amy Hestir Student Protection Act. This Act requires all Missouri school boards to create written policies describing what information they will provide to other public schools regarding former employees, and the compliance deadline is July 1. This Act also requires districts to disclose whether teachers have resigned after being threatened with termination following allegations of sexual misconduct. Because of concerns that districts may be required to release such information even if the allegations turn out to be untrue, the Missouri School Boards’ Association is suggesting policy revisions in an attempt to protect districts from being sued.
Raymore-Peculiar policies under consideration include:
- Resignation of Professional Staff Members
- Termination of Professional Staff Members
- Nonrenewal of Professional Staff Members
- Resignation of Support Staff Members
The Board of Education meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the district’s Administrative Services Center; 21005 S. School Road; Peculiar, MO 64078.
