Blue Valley School District’s Board of Education met Monday, June 11, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda – such as approving construction change orders and a technology plan — board members may approve four new district policies and revise an existing one. These are the same policies that were on last month’s agenda. Usually school boards review new policies one month in what is called a “first reading.” Often approval occurs the next month during the “second reading.”

New policies under consideration will be:

  • Maximum Age for Participation in the Regular High School Program
  • Non-Employees Who Transport Students in Private Vehicles To Or From School Sponsored Activities
  • Employees Who Operate District-Owned Vehicles
  • Employees or Non-Employees Who Operate District-Owned Vehicles to Transport Students.

And the policy under consideration for revision is “Temporary and Personal Illness Leaves.”

The Board of Education meeting, which was open to the public, took place in the District Office Board Room; 15020 Metcalf Ave.; Overland Park, KS 66283. Their next regular open meeting will take place Monday, July 9.
