In addition to routine items on the agenda such as hearing a treasurer’s report and accepting bids for equipment and services, board members had a full schedule.
A significant item on the agenda was the resignation of an unnamed board member. The KC Education Enterprise has requested details from the district and will publish more information as it becomes available.
The board also was to consider approving changes to two district policies. One was a policy relating to graduation requirements and the other to staff relationships with students. This latter policy regulates 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.
This meeting, which was open to the public, took place at the district’s Doolin Center; 1900 N.E. 46th St.; Kansas City, MO 64116.
