The Excelsior Springs School District’s Board of Education met Monday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as paying the bills and approving meal prices for next year, board members had a full schedule.

A significant topic on the agenda was consideration of a policy regarding staff relationships with students. This policy would regulate communication through the use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. A new state statute, The Amy Hestir Student Protection Act, requires districts to approve such a policy no later than March 1.

One item that did not appear on the schedule was a presentation on school bond refinancing that was announced last month. No explanation was provided regarding the omission.

The Board of Education meeting, which was open to the public, took place in Room 8 of the district’s Early Childhood Center; 113 Line Street; Excelsior Springs, MO 64024.
