Turner School District’s Board of Education will meet Tuesday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to routine items on the agenda — such as approving a trip by Michelle Sedler to the Apple Superintendent Symposium in Chicago and raising some fees for next school year — board members will review the district’s Student Conduct policy.
They will consider revising one of the district’s non-negotiable rules. Currently the rule about drugs mandates five days of detention or suspension the first time students are “seen with a tobacco product on school property.” The proposed change is to allow students the option of attending a tobacco education program. Such a rule provides a consequence for first-time offenders without necessarily removing them from classes.
The 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 will be Tuesday, April 17.
