The Turner School District’s Board of Education will met Tuesday, March 27, at 6:30 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as paying the bills and reviewing requests for out-of-state student travel, the board will consider revising two district policies.

Because the board has approved the establishment of a Sixth Grade Academy, members need to consider revising their School District Organizational Plan policy. District administrators have recommended the change of one sentence to read: “The district will be organized as a PreK-5, 6, 7-8, 9-12 system of schools.”

Also tonight, board members will consider adding the following language to their Use of Facilities and Equipment policy: “Those governmental organizations engaged in authorized elections of city, state, county, school and federal jurisdiction shall use the school facilities at no charge. Recognized political parties engaged in caucuses shall use the facilities at no charge unless anticipated attendance requires additional resources.” Earlier this month, the board received a request for use of Turner High School as the site of a Democratic caucus on Wednesday, April 14.

Tonight’s meeting, which is open to the public,will take place in the Board Room of the Administrative Service Center; 800 S. 55th St.; Kansas City, KS 66106. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 3.
