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

In addition to routine agenda items — such as arranging transportation for homeless children and hearing an appeal by a student who was expelled — board members considered changing five district policies.

Two of the proposed policy changes were on last month’s agenda, as well. Generally, school boards review changes one month in what is known as a “first reading.” Then, the second month, they vote on approval. Tonight, Superintendent Gene Johnson proposed revisions of the following five policies:

  • Community and Other Use of School Facilities Administrative Procedures
  • (2nd reading)

  • Public Conduct on School Property Trespass Notification
  • (2nd reading)

  • Tobacco and Electronic Cigarette-Free Schools
  • (1st reading)

  • Tobacco Use by Students
  • (1st reading)

  • Tobacco Use by Students Administrative Procedures (1st reading).

The meeting, which was open to the public, took place at the Howard D. McEachen Administrative Center; 7235 Antioch Road; Overland Park, KS 66204. Monday, June 25, is the date of the next regular scheduled school board meeting.
