The Fort Osage School District’s Board of Education met Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda such as authorizing the sale of surplus property and accepting bids, board members had a full schedule this evening.

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. However, according to the Fort Osage board’s schedule, they do not play to vote on approval until mid-March.

Other agenda items include the hearing of reports on bond projects, the budget, education bills pending in the state legislature and a the state department of education’s proposed application for a waiver of requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.

The Fort Osage Board of Education meeting, which was open to the public, took place at the Gragg Administrative Office; 2101 N. Twyman Road; Independence, MO 64058.
